Massage therapy students at National University of Health Science performed exceptionally well on their national board exam scores, according to an official report from the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork.
In fact, National University's school pass rate during the last national board exam was 92.86 percent! Compare that to the Illinois pass rate average of 70.59 and the national pass rate average of 74.75 for the same time period.
"A high pass rate such as this, shows that our students are well prepared, and comfortable in the knowledge and skills they will need as professional massage therapists," says Dr. Randy Swenson, Dean of the College of Allied Health Sciences at National University.
For every single test period since 2009, on every single topic tested, National University MT grads outperformed state and national averages. Take a look at the full results here.
Every massage therapist needs to take their board exams for licensure in Illinois. National University is proud to offer massage therapy certification and degree programs that prepare students for success on both board exams and for a full range of rewarding career options in massage therapy.
