NBCE Assessments

The National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) is a non-profit testing organization founded in 1963. Under the supervision of an eleven-member board of directors, the NBCE develops, administers and scores examinations taken by applicants for chiropractic licensure — NBCE Parts I, II, III and IV.

The NBCE also offers the Special Purposes Examination for Chiropractic and NBCE Ethics and Boundaries Examination for use by experienced practitioners seeking licensure reciprocity/endorsement, or re-licensure at the request of a state licensing board—through Pearson VUE.
