You want to assure your patients, your licensing board and, most importantly, yourself that you’re competent. FSBPT offers resources to help you:
Maintaining your competence is critical to your career, the physical therapy profession and the public. Here's why:
The jurisprudence exam may help you fulfill a portion of your licensure renewal or continuing competence/continuing education (CC/CE) requirements.
Find out if the jurisprudence exam is available in your state.
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.
