The Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE) requires Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine programs to disclose up-to-date results of student performance on national board examinations. Per the CCE, each program shall post annual and overall weighted averages of the four (4) most recent years’ NBCE Parts I, II, III and IV exam success rates. Data found in Table 1 satisfies this reporting requirement.

NUHS, in its support of the advancement of education and new knowledge, offers qualified Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) students the opportunity to enroll in its Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, Master of Science in Acupuncture, or Master of Science in Oriental Medicine while completing their DC degree. The completion of two degree programs simultaneously requires additional time which causes some students to complete the program beyond the required reporting timeframe. This causes the calculated percentage of completion (within the allotted timeframe) to be lower than the actual percentage of students who do graduate (Table 2). Therefore, we have provided two charts for your information. For example, during the Fall 2015 – Summer 2016 trimesters, NUHS had 27 students (7.6%) pursuing a second degree while completing their DC degree. These students (because of the limited timeframe) contribute significantly to the lower calculated completion percentage of the Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine Program and the National University of Health Sciences (Table 3). Therefore, the difference between the completion percentages of the two charts. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Daniel Strauss (727-394-6058) in Florida or Dr. Sandra Rogers (630-889-6467) in Illinois.
