Nebraska’s agriculturally productive prairie land makes it a leading state for farming and ranching. Nebraska, therefore, has two nicknames: the Cornhusker State and the Beef State. This Midwestern state is famous for Cliffs Notes, Berkshire Hathaway, Kool-Aid, Union Pacific Railway, and Mutual of Omaha. Notable Nebraskan cities include Omaha, Bellevue, and Lincoln, but 90 percent of Nebraska’s cities and towns have fewer than 3,000 residents.
Natural health is becoming an important industry in Nebraska, and related careers, such as acupuncture, promise a satisfying and secure future. A license (L.Ac.) is required to practice acupuncture in Nebraska.
To obtain a license, you need training from a full-time acupuncture program at a college, university, or school of acupuncture. The training course must include at least 1,725 hours of entry-level acupuncture education with 1,000 didactic and 500 clinical hours. The school and/or training program should be approved by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) or another accredited body recognized by the US Department of Education. In addition, you must complete a clean needle technique course and acupuncture examination approved by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM)
