Important Notice to Licensees
Jurisprudence and Ethics
Licensees must complete four (4) credits of jurisprudence and professional ethics continuing education during each biennial renewal period.
Effective February 1, 2015, the New Jersey State Board of Physical Therapy Examiners will list on its website, online distance-learning Jurisprudence Assessment Modules that have been approved by the Board. Licensees will be required to fulfill the jurisprudence portion of the mandatory ethics and jurisprudence continuing education by completing an approved Jurisprudence Assessment Module between February 1, 2015 and January 31, 2016. The Jurisprudence Assessment Modules will provide 1.5 credits and these specific modules are mandatory for all licensees. Licensees can complete any ethics course of 2.5 credits or more to meet the four-credit jurisprudence and professional ethics requirement. If a licensee has already completed the maximum 10 credits through distance-learning courses during this renewal period, the Board will allow the 1.5 credits completed from the Jurisprudence Assessment Module to be added to the 10 maximum credits during this renewal period only.
Beginning February 1, 2015, applicants (applications received on or after February 1, 2015) for a new license must take and pass a Jurisprudence Assessment Module prior to licensure. New licensees who were licensed between February 1, 2015 and January 31, 2016 and have completed a Jurisprudence Assessment Module for licensure, will not need to complete a Jurisprudence Assessment Module for this renewal.
