August 21, 2018—New York Chiropractic College (NYCC) is partnering with the Association of New Jersey Chiropractors (ANJC) to offer the first training program for individuals who wish to become Licensed Chiropractic Assistants (LCAs).
With this program, New Jersey is the first state in the nation to offer licensure for chiropractic assistants. Taught by highly-qualified NYCC faculty in both traditional classroom and online formats, the LCA program is designed to be completed in 12-18 months and includes 120 hours of coursework. After also completing the additional required 380 hours of clinical training under an approved LCA Clinical Trainer, as well as passing required examinations, the LCA candidate may then apply for licensure.
Graduates of NYCC’s new program can look forward to rewarding careers as vital members of the chiropractic healthcare team. Licensed chiropractic assistants can offer support for tasks that previously could be performed only by chiropractors, such as health data collection, physical examinations, rehabilitative procedures, and patient encounter documentation.
