National Board Of
Chiropractic Examiners

The National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) is the principal testing agency for the chiropractic profession.

The NBCE board exams consist of five examinations that all LIFE D.C. students take for state licensing requirements. LIFE is proud to teach to produce exceptional chiropractors, while also maintaining one of top NBCE Licensing Exam success rates of all chiropractic colleges. Eighty-four percent of LIFE graduates pass all parts of NBCE exams within six months of graduation.
