NBCE Pass Rates and Licensure

Chiropractic National Board Exams

Chiropractic National Board examinations are divided into two sections: written examinations (Part I, II, III and Physiotherapy) and practical examinations (Part IV). The National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) administers the written exams in March and September at multiple test sites in the United States and Canada, while the practical examinations are administered at multiple sites in the United States in May and November. Tests are also given in France and Australia.
