Jurisprudence Exam


Jurisprudence exams protect the public by measuring a practitioner’s knowledge of their state’s practice rules and regulations and are common to many licensed professions.
All current and potential licensees should be familiar with the practice act and rules under which they are applying or licensed to work.

History & Mandate

A 2020 revision to NAC 637B granted the Board authority to consider requiring applicants take and pass a Jurisprudence Examination as a condition for initial license or reinstatement of an expired license. In 2021, the Board voted to pursue development of the Jurisprudence Exam, with the goal of developing an optional exam to deploy in January 2022, followed by a required jurisprudence exam with a deployment date to be determined.  

The exam is currently OPTIONAL and encouraged for all new applicants and renewing licensees.
