State Board licensure requirements are displayed exactly as received from each jurisdiction.  The National Board accepts no responsibility for these statements.

Candidates are advised to check directly with a state board regarding its specific use of examination results. Click State Board Offices to view a listing of names, addresses, and phone numbers of these offices.
