|Agency Decision Summary||
At its meeting on August 5, 2011, the Board reiterated its determination to require passage of Part IV of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners examination (NBCE) for any applicant who graduated after January 31, 1996. Passage of the clinical portion of the examination has been required for 15 years, and the Board does not believe it is in the interest of public safety to lessen the examination requirement.
