May 19, 2012 — The NBCE Board of Directors is establishing an additional test site for the Part IV National Practical Examination at the Palmer College of Chiropractic campus in Port Orange, Fla. The site will be available for testing beginning with the November 2012 administration of Part IV.
Part IV is offered twice each year at chiropractic campuses across the U.S. By adding the site in Florida, the NBCE hopes to accommodate testing needs for chiropractic students in the southeastern U.S.
The NBCE Part IV Examination assesses clinical skills in diagnostic imaging, chiropractic technique, and case management for applicants seeking state licensure. Unlike traditional multiple choice tests, the Part IV Examination gives examinees the opportunity to demonstrate their clinical skills in simulated doctor-patient encounters, with follow-up questions, plus a modified multiple choice, practical radiology examination.
