The National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) recently recognized two faculty members from Cleveland University-Kansas City for their contributions at the NBCE Test Committee meetings held Aug. 26-27. Dr. Thomas K. Nichols served as a subject matter expert on the General Diagnosis committee, and Dr. Jason Qualls served in the same capacity on the Physiotherapy committee. The two reviewed, edited and analyzed exam questions for content and appropriateness for future General Diagnosis and Physiology examinations.
Dr. Bruce L. Shotts, Dipl. Ac., M.S., director of written examinations for NBCE, commended Nichols and Qualls for their professionalism in the meetings and thanked them for their contributions to the development of the examinations.
The two were appointed to the committee by NBCE for their level of competency in their assigned subject areas.
The NBCE multi-part board test is administered to gauge the skills of chiropractic students preparing to enter the profession. Each exam focuses on different academic areas, including basic science, clinical science, clinical competency, and adjunctive therapies. Successful completion of the exams is required for licensure in most states.
