Daily News: Confident & secure of employment

April 29, 2014 | Sarah Hoffbeck

NDSCS boasts an 82 percent placement rate for OTA students within six months of graduation

The demand for occupational therapy services is strong, and the U.S. Dept. of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics projects employment for occupational therapists to increase by 26 percent and for occupational therapy assistants to increase by 30 percent or more from 2008 to 2018.

Students in the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program at North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton feel confident in being able to secure employment after graduation. The school boasts an 82 percent placement rate for its OTA students within six months of graduation, two points higher than the national average.

Missi Twidwell, a faculty instructor in the program and occupational therapist, said people are often curious as to what occupational therapy assistants do.

“We take what people do everyday and help them be as independent as possible,” she said. “Physical therapy looks more at the movement and mobility. We look at the occupations that everybody does, the holistic, the psycho-social, emotional as well as physical sides. It’s a broader aspect.”

Competition is tough to get into the two-year program, which accepts about 32 students each fall.

“We encourage high school students to take the sciences,” she said.

Twidwell said the types of personalities that do well in the industry are those who are motivated, creative, enjoy working with people and like problem solving.

“I’ve heard people say, ‘I like the arts and I like science,’ it’s a good fit,” she said.

Salaries for these jobs are attractive. Data from a 2010 American Occupational Therapy Association’s compensation study found an average entry level salary of $34,300 for OTA positions and $52,000 for OT positions, rising to $44,000 and $64,700, respectively, over time.

Student Natalie Marquardt practiced putting a splint on Taylor Anderson during class this week. Marquardt said she chose the OTA program because she enjoys working with people. Anderson said she liked that the program was offered close to home, and has small class groups.

“It’s more homey, the classroom,” Marquardt said.

“It’s more individualized, too, you get more one-on-one with the teacher,” Anderson added.

Students Peter Fisher and Carlene Porter worked to soften a splint in water to make it more malleable.

Fisher said he would like to work with amputee patients after college and Porter said she intends to work in a nursing home.

OTAs can work in a variety of fields, with patients ranging in age from babies to the elderly. Baby boomers are living longer and they have more needs. With medical advances, premature babies are being born earlier and require more treatment.

Students practice on baby dolls first, before working on real babies for developmental milestones such as head control and reaching motions.

“We facilitate through play those activities they should be reaching,” Twidwell said. “They will learn different skills and even social interaction as they grow.

“If we start working with kids at an earlier age, rather than waiting until they enter school, we can maybe help them catch up to where they need to be, so when they start school they can just jump in the class,” Twidwell added. “A lot of our COTAs (certified occupational therapist assistants) will work in schools. Some work in wellness centers, or driving programs to keep people driving after an injury. There’s a lot of avenues you can work in.”

Students who choose to work with seniors may do home safety assessments to determine modifications that may be needed, including adding grab bars, transfer chairs for the tub, and even special kitchen utensils that can help with arthritic patients.

“A big thing now is the driving programs,” she said. “People want their independence. After an injury they want to be able to return to driving and do those things they did before.”

In addition to learning in the classroom, students spend their final semester doing field work.

“Our students have three semesters of classroom and the final spring semester they go out in the field for eight weeks at one site and then eight weeks at another, under the direction of a COTA or OTA,” she said. “They like the hands-on and active learning.”

Twidwell said the program faculty is very appreciative of the partnership with the field worksites, as they allow students to come and work in their facilities at no charge to NDSCS.

“It’s been a great partnership,” she said.

Other areas students could go into include working with ergonomics and assessing work environments, working in nursing homes and even community outreach.

One of the community outreach programs NDSCS is involved with is the Kids on the Block puppets, which are funded through the Mayor’s Committee.

Department Chairwoman Elizabeth Schlepp said the program has six puppets that students take out to schools for educational presentations on a variety of topics, including how to deal with bullying and interacting with learning and physically disabled individuals.

“We have a puppet with a burn and she has the plastic mask and some splints,” Schlepp said. “It explains to the students what all that is.”

Twidwell said there are different scripts for different age levels and there are always new topics available.

“We’ve also taken the puppets to nursing homes, they really like that,” Schlepp said.

Other outreach programs are with Circle of Nations students, Wahpeton School District and Red River Valley clients.

“One of the mottos of the American Occupational Therapy Association is, ‘Helping people live their life to the fullest.’ That’s what we do,” Twidell said.

NDSCS Professor Larry Ascheman receives PAS Outstanding Advisor Award

April 21, 2014 | Sarah Hoffbeck

Larry Ascheman, John Deere Tech and Diesel Technology associate professor at the North Dakota State College of Science has recently been awarded the National Postsecondary Agricultural Student Organization (PAS) Outstanding Advisor Award.

The PAS Outstanding Advisor Award recognizes advisors/instructors at local postsecondary institutions who have gone above and beyond in contributing to and making the PAS organization something worthwhile and special to both students in agriculture and fellow PAS members.

Aaron Anderson, Assistant Supervisor of Agriculture Education with the North Dakota Department of Career and Technical Education, nominated Ascheman. Criteria for selection taken into account included the number of: years teaching postsecondary, years involved with PAS, national conferences attended, years of membership with the National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE), years served as a state or national officer, and state and national career program area winners. A list of state PAS positions held and the number of years served on the National PAS Board of Directors was also required.

Ascheman, originally from Donnelly, Minn., graduated from NDSCS with an associate’s degree in diesel technology and a bachelor’s degree in technical education from Valley City State University in Valley City, N.D. An instructor at NDSCS since 1993 and the coordinator for the John Deere Tech program since 2001, he has been instrumental in coaching and advising countless NDSCS teams to top three finishes almost every year at the national PAS competition.

“NDSCS has competed annually for several years at PAS competitions and won many state and national awards,” said Ascheman. “It really has been fun to see the students succeed throughout the years. The John Deere tech students are always a tremendous group to work with. Their success is a tribute to the quality of students at NDSCS and the skill sets they have mastered.”

Ascheman and his wife, Peggy, reside in the Breckenridge/Wahpeton community and have three children: Trevor (Amie) Ascheman of Minneota, Minn., Breanna (Jonathan) Paulson of Williston, N.D., and Tyler (Corin) Ascheman of Edgeley, N.D.

Prairie Business: Wanted: Ideas to overcome state-wide worker shortage

April 17, 2014 | Sarah Hoffbeck

By John Hageman (Forum News Service)

The numbers can be daunting. North Dakota has the lowest unemployment rate in the nation at 2.6 percent. There were 23,000 online job openings in March, according to the Job Service North Dakota, and only 11,000 active resumes.

The numbers help paint a picture of what many business and political leaders see as a workforce shortage in North Dakota. But at least one business here is focusing on taking a personal approach to the problem.

“If you treat your employees as a number, you’ll probably be treated like a number back,” said T.J. Stewart, a principal and director of North Dakota operations for Braun Intertec, a geotechnical engineering firm based in Minneapolis with offices in North Dakota. He participated in a workshop during the Governor’s Business Forum Tuesday at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks, an event organized by the Greater North Dakota Chamber.

Stewart added that while Braun offers competitive salaries, the feeling that an employee is valued and being challenged will go a long way toward getting them to stay.

That workshop also highlighted the experience of Jennifer McKinnon, a staff engineer for Braun Intertec in West Fargo, N.D. Originally from North Dakota, she attended college in Mankato, Minn., before moving to the Twin Cities for work.

She said she was impressed with how Braun marketed themselves during three face-to-face interviews.

“They made me feel like they really wanted me,” McKinnon said. “They made me feel like I’d be a great asset to their company.”

Interacting

Andy Peterson, president and CEO of the North Dakota Chamber, said he hears from businesses from every corner of the state facing workforce problems. He said forums like the one held in Grand Forks Tuesday provide an opportunity for businesspeople to exchange ideas on how to recruit and retain workers.

“We want people to interact with people who are having success,” he said. “Every once in a while an idea comes up and you say, ‘Wow, why didn’t I think of that?’”

Another event in March also solicited ideas from local business leaders for recruiting and retaining workers.

Peterson said workforce challenges come with a variety of related issues, including finding affordable housing and daycare services.

Another workshop Tuesday highlighted the connections between higher education and the private sector.

John Richman, president of the North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton, touted the benefits of corporate partnerships in higher education. He said more companies are investing in training students ahead of time instead of recruiting them once they’ve graduated.

He cited one example in which a vendor provides NDSCS with $250,000 in new technology every year to train students in land surveying.

“So our students have the latest, greatest technology to learn on,” Richman said.

“We’re adding partners on a regular basis,” he added. “Because they’re starting to understand the value of partnering with us, that they need the workforce in order to expand their companies.”

NDSCS named a Promising Place to Work in Student Affairs

April 07, 2014 | Sarah Hoffbeck

The North Dakota State College of Science is one of 31 institutions named a Promising Place to Work in Student Affairs (PPWSA) 2014 by the American College Personnel Association (ACPA) and Diverse: Issues in Higher Education magazine.

The “30+ Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs” list was unveiled in the March 27, 2014 edition of Diverse magazine.

The PPWSA national study, a collaborative project between ACPA and Diverse magazine, was conducted by the Center for Inclusion, Diversity and Academic Success (iDEAS) in the College of Education and Human Ecology at Ohio State University. 

“We are honored to receive this designation,” said NDSCS President Dr. John Richman. “The College strongly believes in fostering an inclusive environment for all students, staff and faculty. The people of NDSCS – students, employees, alumni and friends – hold learning, integrity, flexibility and excellence in the highest regard. We strive for everyone to feel valued and supported.”

Originally conceptualized during the Fall 2011 semester, the study was commissioned to examine the administrative structures, commitment to diversity, and workplace or staffing practices of various divisions/departments of student affairs at participating ACPA member institutions.

Using a list provided by ACPA, iDEAS sent surveys to hundreds of campuses. The initial survey was comprised of six categories including family friendliness, salary/benefits and professional development opportunities, to name a few.
