National Board Performance (NBCE)
UWS students perform exceptionally well on the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) exams. Successful completion of Parts I, II, III, and IV of the NBCE exams is necessary to become licensed in almost all U.S. licensing jurisdictions. International licensing requirements differ.
Table1 below utilizes the reporting format required by the Council on Chiropractic Education® (CCE) for accreditation purposes. This format indicates the percentage of students who attempted one or more of the four parts and passed all four parts of the NBCE exams within six months following graduation from the UWS DC program.
Because many international students do not plan to practice in the U.S., they typically elect NOT to take all four NBCE exams because the exams are not required for licensure in their home country. Therefore, Table 1 data may not be relevant for students who plan to take all parts of the NBCE examination as required in the vast majority of U.S. jurisdictions.
Table 2 below discloses the percentage of students who attempted and passed all four parts of the NBCE exams within six months following graduation from the UWS DC program. This reporting format is a more accurate reflection of performance for students that take ALL parts of the NBCE examinations, which are universally required for practice in almost every U.S. licensing jurisdiction.
UWS students have exceeded the national first-time pass rate for NBCE exams for the past 10 years.
