Why is continuing competence so important?

Maintaining your competence is critical to your career, the physical therapy profession and the public. Here's why:

  • Patients have every right to assume that a health care provider's license to practice provides assurance of his or her current professional competence.
  • Clinicians themselves want assurance that those with whom they practice possess and use current knowledge and skills, and are fully competent.

Should you take the jurisprudence exam?

The jurisprudence exam may help you fulfill a portion of your licensure renewal or continuing competence/continuing education (CC/CE) requirements.

  • Contact your licensing authority

    Find out if the jurisprudence exam is available in your state.

  • Register to take the exam

    Licensees in Florida and Nebraska* may elect to take an FSBPT administered jurisprudence exam for purposes of meeting a portion of their licensure renewal or CC/CE requirements.

    *Nebraska does not pre-approve continuing education programs but may accept as continuing education for renewal of a license or certificate, or reinstatement of a license or certificate, the completion of the jurisprudence exam. Five (5) hours of continuing education will be awarded for passing the jurisprudence exam with a scaled score that is greater than or equal to 600.
