If you want to pursue a fast-growing career in acupuncture, why not learn the tricks of the trade in one of the fastest-growing states in the country? Acupuncture schools in Arizona, home of one of the seven natural wonders of the world – the Grand Canyon – are an excellent place to begin an in-demand acupuncture career.
In Arizona, not only does the State Board of Acupuncture Examiners license and regulate acupuncturists, it certifies auricular acupuncturists (acupuncture done on the ear) as well. To become licensed in Arizona, you must complete an accredited or Board-approved program of acupuncture. Acupuncture schools in Arizona require at least 1850 hours of training, including 800 clinic hours.
Though it’s not necessary to be certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) to become licensed in Arizona, you do need to pass NCCAOM exam modules in foundations of Oriental medicine, acupuncture, point location, and biomedicine.
And graduates of acupuncture schools in Arizona are in good company – as of December 2010, there were 489 active licensed acupuncturists and 60 active certificated auricular acupuncturists in the state. Why not start your fast-growing career in the Grand Canyon State?
