Medical NPTE Exam (National Physical Therapy Examination) Detailed Information

National Exam (NPTE)
All about NPTE, all in one place
Taking the national physical therapy exam (NPTE) is an important step toward receiving your physical therapist (PT) or physical therapist assistant (PTA) license. Here you'll find everything you need to know about the NPTE from start to finish, including:
Journey Map
How to prepare for the exam
What to expect the day of the exam
How to get your results
What to do if you don't pass
Learn about the requirements for non-U.S. educated candidates
Information for if you're seeking ADA testing accommodations
Purpose of the NPTE
The PT and PTA exams are designed to assess your basic entry-level competence after graduation from an accredited program or from an equivalent non-accredited program.
The FSPBT develops, maintains and administers the NPTE for two reasons:
To help ensure that only those individuals who have the requisite knowledge of physical therapy are licensed in the physical therapy field.
To help regulatory authorities evaluate candidates and provide standards that are comparable from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
Additional requirements.
The NPTE is only one part of the evaluation process used by licensing authorities to assess your competence. Contact your jurisdiction to find out what additional requirements there are, such as taking the jurisprudence exam.
Eligibility Requirements
Current Eligibility Requirements:
In order to gain access to the NPTE candidates must meet certain eligibility requirements from both 1) the state in which they seek licensure and 2) the FSBPT.
FSBPT Requirements
You must be at least 18 years of age.
Submit an online registration and pay the registration fee.
Have a degree appropriate for the exam level from a CAPTE accredited institution, or
Be within 90 days of graduation from a CAPTE accredited institution.; or
Have an education that is deemed substantially equivalent.
Have only tested 3 times out of the last 4 test dates (Maximum attempts in any 12-month period per exam level is 3) .
Have complied with any test security requests made by FSBPT staff.
Have completed any sanctions related to a disciplinary action taken by FSBPT or a jurisdiction licensing authority.
Be approved by the licensing authority (board) in the state or jurisdiction where they intend to be licensed.
Jurisdiction Requirements
To approve a candidate to sit for the NPTE, at a minimum, jurisdictions will require:
The candidate is a graduate of or graduating from a PT or PTA program that meets the accreditation standards of the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) or is deemed substantially equivalent.
For a complete list of jurisdiction requirements visit the website for the state in which you are seeking licensure
2016 Eligibility Requirements:
The requirements below will be in addition to the current FSBPT requirements.
FSBPT’s eligibility requirements are not the same as a jurisdiction’s requirements for licensure.
Candidates will be able to take the exam a maximum of 6 times. An individual can take the NPTE for PTs 6 times and also take the NPTE for PTAs 6 times if he or she is otherwise qualified to do so. Candidates will still be allowed up to 3 attempts per year but now will have a 6 time total limit. As of January 1, 2016, any candidate who has already tested 6 times will no longer be allowed to test unless a jurisdiction chooses to appeal this policy on a specific candidate’s behalf (see “appeals process” below).
Candidates who have not yet passed the exam received a notice from FSBPT in 2014 explaining the new requirement and implementation date. The notice period allows candidates to take up to 3 attempts in 2015. There will be no “grandfathering” for candidates who registered prior to this requirement going into effect. All candidates who do not have a passing score and have tested in the last 3 years will be notified of the changes and have until January 1, 2016 to pass the exam prior to the new requirements going into effect.
Candidates who receive two very low scores on the exam, currently defined as performing at or close to chance level (scale scores 400 and below), will not be allowed to test again. Candidates who receive a very low score on the exam are notified that their performance is so far away from the minimal competence level that they need to engage in serious remediation, like enrolling in another PT educational program, before attempting the NPTE again and that another score that is very low (400 or below) may result in further action by FSBPT. As January 1, 2016, candidates who receive a score of 400 or less will be notified that a second score of 400 or less will result in a lifetime ban. No scores prior to January 1, 2016 will be considered, which means all candidates will have a “clean slate” with regard to this eligibility requirement.
2018 Eligibility Requirements:
Most foreign-educated physical therapists/assistants will need to pass the TOEFL and meet FSBPT’s current score requirements. There are some exemptions to the TOEFL requirement for individuals who are exempt under the USCIS regulations. TOEFL scores must be reported directly to FSBPT for purposes of determining eligibility for the NPTE. States may have different requirements for licensure and submitting TOEFL scores to the FSBPT does not mean that a candidate has met state licensure requirements. For information on each state’s TOEFL requirements visit the state’s website. The current FSBPT TOEFL score requirement is in the table below.
TOEFL Section Minimum Score
Listening 18
Writing 24
Speaking 26
Graduates from non-CAPTE accredited programs will need to demonstrate their education is equivalent to a CAPTE accredited education by having an authorized agency complete an evaluation using the current version of FSBPT’s Coursework Tool (CWT). Click here for contact information for agencies authorized to use the CWT.
Appeals Process
Candidates who are ineligible to register for the NPTE because they do not meet eligibility requirements are able to request that a jurisdiction appeal on their behalf to FSBPT. The only eligibility requirements that can be appealed through this process are 1) 6-time lifetime limit and 2) the 2 very low scores policy. The 2018 eligibility requirements are not yet in effect. The process is as follows:
Download the APPEALS FORM.
Complete the appeals form.
Submit the completed form to the jurisdiction where you have been seeking licensure. Jurisdiction contact information.
The state licensing board will review the appeal request and determine whether they will submit to FSBPT.
Appeals that are submitted to the FSBPT by a jurisdiction on behalf of a candidate will be reviewed and a decision made within 30 days.
Candidates will be notified by FSBPT if an appeal has been granted.
When an appeal is granted, the individual has ONE YEAR to register for ONE ADDITIONAL exam attempt.
Candidates who appeal will need to be able to demonstrate that they are qualified to take the NPTE and are a bona fide candidate for licensure in a state.
IMPORTANT NOTE: FSBPT will NOT review appeals requests directly from candidates. The appeal must come from a jurisdiction.
If I didn’t get an email about the new eligibility requirements, do they still apply to me?
All individuals applying for exams in 2016 will be subject to the new eligibility requirements even if they did not receive a letter.
Why is FSBPT implementing new eligibility requirements?
FSBPT’s mission is one of public protection and one of our primary ways of protecting the public is by ensuring that the NPTE is a valid, reliable measure of entry-level competence. Our members, the licensing authorities for 53 states and jurisdictions, have discussed enhancing exam security through additional eligibility requirements for several years. It was a topic of discussion at the NPTE Summit in 2011 and at the Leadership Issues Forums in 2012 and 2013. Additional eligibility requirements also communicate to candidates that there are minimum competencies, in addition to graduation from a PT/PTA program, that they must have to attempt the NPTE.
I received an email that said the new eligibility requirements go into effect in 2015. Is that correct?
The changes to the eligibility requirements go into effect when a candidate registers for an exam that will be administered in 2016. This means that the eligibility requirements are based on the exam date you are choosing to take, not the date you are completing the exam registration. Some people will register for 2016 exams as soon as the registration opens which happens in 2015. Anybody registering for exams that will be given in 2016 or later will be subject to the 6-time lifetime limit and the two very low
About the National Physical Therapy Examination
The Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) administers the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE), the examination that every graduate of a physical therapy or physical therapist assistant education program must pass to become a licensed physical therapist or licensed/certified physical therapist assistant (or to regain licensure/certification if lapsed) in the United States (US). Foreign-educated candidates who wish to become licensed in the US must also take and pass this examination.
The NPTE is a computer-administered examination. The physical therapist licensure examination has five sections each with 50 questions. Of the 250 multiple choice questions, only 200 are scored. The other 50 questions are being pretested to see if they meet the standards to be included in future exams. The physical therapist assistant licensure examination has four sections with a total of 200 multiple choice questions. As in the physical therapist examination, 50 of these questions are being pre-tested and are not scored.
There is one scheduled 15 minute break during the examination. A candidate may take up to three unscheduled breaks between sections, but these breaks use time that is allotted for test-taking. Additional information about the examinations can be found via FSBPT's NPTE Exam Candidate's webpage.
The scoring ranges from 200-800. The minimum passing score is 600 for both the PT and PTA exam.
Testing is administered at Prometric Testing Centers. Candidates are not required to test in the jurisdiction for which they are applying for licensure.
View Exam Fees for the current examination cycle
The NPTE has fixed-date testing for both the PT and PTA examination. View information on testing dates.
Guidelines and Tips
General information on registration and eligibility is available on the FSBPT website. Registration information and requirements vary by state. It is important to realize that a candidate must first meet eligibility requirements of the jurisdiction to which he or she is applying for licensure before scheduling the exam. Information by state can be located on the FSBPT Licensing Authorities web page.
Tip: There is no penalty for answering a question incorrectly—answer all questions even if unsure of the answer.
The FSBPT offers access to two 200-question practice examinations through Practice Examination and Assessment Tool (PEAT) for both the PT and the PTA exam.
Learn About Physical Therapy Certification, the NPTE and Licensing
If you want to be a practicing physical therapist you’ll need to get licensed—all 50 states require it.
All 50 states require you to go through a physical therapy licensing process in order to practice. All but five states also require licensure or registration for physical therapy assistants.
After graduating from a physical therapy program that is approved by the American Physical Therapy Association’s Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education, you must then pass the National Physical Therapist Examination (NPTE) which is developed by the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy.
Attending Accredited Physical Therapy Schools
Choosing accredited physical therapy schools is important for many reasons. Not only does it give you and future employers peace of mind, but it’s also integral for certification and licensing. Accreditation, in practical terms, is a “stamp of approval,” a sign that an institution ascribes to, believes in, and has met an external set of basic criteria for its programs. In all cases, it indicates that threshold standards are adhered to in a fashion that provides a base of academic strength and operational integrity.
Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE)
CAPTE accredits entry-level programs in the U.S. for the physical therapist at the master’s and doctoral degree levels and programs for the physical therapist assistant at the associate degree level. There are currently more than 400 PT and PTA programs accredited by CAPTE.

National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE)
The NPTE, for both physical therapists and physical therapy assistants, is computer-based. You may sit for the examination at any of the approximately 300 testing centers in the United States, U.S. territories and Canada. Upon passing the exam you will need to meet any additional requirements your state licensing board may have before they will allow you to practice.
About the NPTE:
PT Exam: 250 questions in 5 sections; 5 hours to take the exam
PTA Exam: 200 questions in 4 sections; 4 hours to take the exam
According to the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy, the PT exam is organized into separate content areas:
Physical Therapy Examination
Foundations for Evaluation, Differential Diagnosis and Prognosis
Equipment and Devices; Therapeutic Modalities
Safety & Protection; Professional Responsibilities; Research
Domains of Practice
The test for PTAs includes the following content areas:
Physical Therapy Data Collection
Diseases/Conditions the Impact Effective Treatment
Equipment and Devices; Therapeutic Modalities
Safety and Protection; Professional Responsibilities; Research
Domains of Practice
You’ll need to score 600 or higher on the exam, but don’t worry if it doesn’t happen the first time. The FSBPT offers the opportunity to retake the exam.

Patients suffer as pvt medical stores refuse scrapped notes

It’s over a week of demonetisation, but patients at the local Civil Hospital continue to suffer with medical stores, including Jan Aushadhi and Red Cross Society-run stores, are facing a shortage of currency whereas banks are also not getting the new currency notes as per their requirement.

Private medical stores outside Civil Hospitals have put up boards carrying a message of ‘Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 scrapped currency notes are not allowed’. Hence, patients had to return empty handed. The currency notes are accepted by private medical shops on conditions that if patient purchase medicines above Rs 400 against the scrapped Rs 500 note.

However, in a big relaxation to patients admitted to the Civil Hospital, Bathinda, the State Bank of Patiala (SBoP) today brought a van to exchange the defunct currency notes up to Rs 2,000. Patients admitted to the Civil Hospital can show the slip of the doctor concerned and the registration number proving the admission of the patient and can exchange the defunct currency.

The SBoP disbursed Rs 1.63 lakh among 53 patients in the Civil Hospital to serve them for exchange of defunct currency in Bathinda.

In Mansa district, the SBoP provided the same services to the needy with the help of doctors. In Bathinda, a number of patients who were unable to get medicines from a Jan Aushadhi Centre or Red Cross-run medical store inside the Civil Hospital or unable to get free medicines from newly launched government-run medicine and laboratory centres, were provided facility to exchange their Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes up to Rs 4,500 per head. The ink marks, though yet to begin in banks, were also marked on fingers of attendants of patients who came to purchase the medicines. Later, the SBoP also allowed blood donors or patients coming at the blood bank to get exchanged their defunct currency. Bank officials provided Rs 100 currency notes against the scrapped currency to patients coming to blood bank as each patient had to pay Rs 300 as testing fee for getting blood.

Assistant general manager Shivdyal Deolka said: “The SBoP on Thursday collected the defunct amount and provided small currency notes of Rs 100 and below to patients. We were having sufficient staff and the cash to disburse among the patients who were admitted to Civil Hospitals. Names and registration numbers of patients were checked and details were collected before they were provided the new currency notes. The facility for the convenience of patients would be continued for tomorrow again as to provide them help in this time of crisis.”

A patient’s attendant, Ashu Gupta, said: “My wife had delivered a girl child and I had to purchase medicines but only some medicines are available here for free and we have to purchase the rest from private medical stores outside the Civil Hospital. Private medical shopkeepers deny us medicines or put conditions before us to purchase more medicines for almost 90 per cent of the scrapped currency note. This is exploitation. But thanks to the SBoP that had started catering to the patients here and providing them change.”

Sukhwinder Singh, owner of a private medical store outside the Civil Hospital said: “We too have no option left. We do not have any loose money to give to those patients who come to purchase small quantity of medicines and gives us Rs 500 or Rs 1,000 note that are now defunct. We cannot exchange the same for small amount. Our business have also suffered a loss. In emergencies, we do not deny the patients and even ask them to pay later if they don’t have change but such customers are rare. The government should make available smaller denomination at the earliest for the patients.”

Hospitals, labs reject Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000 notes

Summary: Many hotels, restaurants, lodges, petrol outlets, shopping malls are refusing to take the banned notes, and are insisting on small value notes or make the payment online. Then I flashed two Rs.500 notes, and again I got the same reply,” said a patient Srikant (name changed), who made rounds for small notes for paying the bill. Patients in deep troublePatients, who throng the hospitals for medical examinations from all over the State, are facing severe inconvenience with the decision of the hospital managements to reject high value notes. Instructions have been given to take small [value] notes or make the payments by swiping card,” an employee in a corporate hospital told The Hindu on Friday. Many patients and attendants were facing similar trouble paying bills as hospital managements were not accepting the big notes post-demonetisation, he said.

“I went to a private hospital and underwent some tests. The bill was about Rs. 900 and I gave Rs.

1,000 at the counter. But, the staff in the billing section said the big note is not accepted. Then I flashed two Rs.500 notes, and again I got the same reply,” said a patient Srikant (name changed), who made rounds for small notes for paying the bill. Many patients and attendants were facing similar trouble paying bills as hospital managements were not accepting the big notes post-demonetisation, he said. Despite the government’s directions to accept high denomination notes in hospitals and other emergency services, notice boards of ‘Rs.1,000 and Rs.500 are not accepted’ are seen in many corporate hospitals, labs, diagnostic centres and medical shops in and around the city. “We don’t accept high denomination notes and we cannot give change for Rs.2,000 note.

16-Year-Old Dies In Kolkata Hospital As Chemist Allegedly Declines Old Notes

A local medical store allegedly refused to sell 'duct tape' in Kolkata.

Kolkata:  Amid a cash crunch in the city, after the demonetisation of high-value currency notes, a young man lost his life in a Kolkata hospital on Friday as a medical store refused to accept the scrapped notes for the critically needed medical tape.

Siba Das, 16, was admitted to the emergency department of RG Kar Medical College and Hospital in Kolkata with high fever on Thursday morning.

A local medical store allegedly refused to sell 'duct tape' for the patient as his family members had only Rs 500 currency notes.

"I wanted to buy for the patient a duct tape, which costs Rs 180. But the store refused to accept the Rs 500 note in spite of the patient's critical condition," complained Sambhu Das, a relative of the teenager.

Though the government has demonetised the high denomination bills of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000, it has asked the public sector hospitals and medical facilities to accept the old bills for helping the patients.

The owner of the medical store, however, denied the allegation and said they asked the patient's family to take away the medicines on loan as they did not have change of Rs 500 at that point.

Local authorities have reported four people were on board the plane, Kenitzer said, but their status is unknown. No ground injuries have been reported.

An Elko cardiologist told the Elko Daily Free Press that the plane was transporting a heart patient to the University of Utah.

A spokesman for American Med Flight released a statement early Friday morning saying three crewmembers and a patient had died in the crash.

"We are devastated by this event and wish we had answers to the many questions being asked at this time," the statement reads.

Families have been notified of the deaths, it continues, and the company is cooperating with investigating federal agencies.
