NBCE Exam Dates

The National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) offers exams in the areas of basic sciences (Part I), clinical sciences (Part II), clinical competency (Part III) and a practical skills exam (Part IV).

Licensing agencies that regulate the practice of chiropractic use NBCE exam scores in their evaluation of candidates for licensure.

Exams are offered several times a year at various chiropractic college locations. Deadlines vary for each administration. Examination dates and application deadlines are available on the NBCE website.
