New Texas JAM (Jurisprudence Assessment Module) Required for PT License Renewals

The Texas Board of Physical Therapy Examiners (PT Board) rolled out a new Texas Jurisprudence Assessment Module (TX JAM) on June 1, 2017. The TX JAM is an interactive online learning assessment that will evaluate a licensee's knowledge of the state rules and regulations governing the practice of physical therapy as well as ethical principles and decision making.

 

Licensees who complete their renewal on or after June 1, 2017, will be required to take the new TX Jurisprudence Assessment Module (TX JAM) which will replace both the JP Exam and the ethics/professional responsibility requirement. An approved ethics course that has already been taken within the renewal period can still be counted toward the total number of required CCUs for those licensees renewing on or after June 1, 2017.

 

With the implementation of the new TX Jurisprudence Assessment Module (TX JAM), approval of courses to specifically meet an ethics/professional responsibility requirement will no longer be needed.

 

The PT Board extends a special thanks and appreciation to all of the sponsors and vendors of the approved ethics/professional responsibility courses that have been provided throughout the years.
