Getting Licensed

The application process for licensure requires registration with the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT). Examination information and the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE) Candidate Handbook are available on that site.

Applicants are also required to obtain application materials from the licensing authority of the jurisdiction in which he or she is seeking licensure. You can find detailed instructions and a downloadable application form for the National Physical Therapy Examination (PT and PTA) from your state board:

Pennsylvania State Board of Physical Therapy
New Jersey State Board of Physical Therapy
Delaware State Board of Physical Therapy
