The New DN Bridge Program to get Licensed in Illinois

The doctor of naprapathy (DN) graduates of National University of Medical Sciences (Spain) can practice naprapathy in 48 states, except Illinois and New Mexico where naprapathic medicine is regulated. But that is now changed, thanks to Dr Shante Griggs, president of the National College of Naprapathic Medicine (founded in 1906) and the American Naprapathic Association (founded in 1907). 

The Chicago based National College of Naprapathic Medicine has created a Clinical Internship Bridge program for online graduates of NUMSS DN program. Upon successful completion of the NCNM Bridge Program NUMSS DN graduates will receive a a degree from NCNM and then can sit for the Illinois Naprapathic License Examinations to become licensed as a doctor of naprapathic medicine. 

Graduates will then be permitted to use the title of “Dr” and bill medical & health insurers for naprapathic medical care they provide to patients. 

We wish to thank Dr Grigg and NCNM for creating this program for NUMSS (Spain) graduates.
