State Licensures
The M.Ac. and M.A.O.M. degree programs offered at Han University fully prepare you for the Clean Needle Test (CNT) exam, the NCCAOM board exams, and the other requirements necessary to qualify to become a Licensed Acupuncturist in the State of Arizona and most states. For the latest information on becoming licensed in Arizona, check with the State of Arizona Acupuncture Board of Examiners website. For more details about other states, check in with Alex or Jenna in the HUTM office.

State of Arizona Disclaimer
The State of Arizona government has recently required that all institutions that teach acupuncture and Oriental medicine fully inform students that the practice of “Oriental Medicine” is not the practice of medicine. As a result of this governmental decree, Han University must publish the following:

A degree in “Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine” does not authorize a person to practice “Oriental Medicine” in Arizona. Currently, the term “Oriental Medicine” is not included in the definition of the practice of acupuncture for persons licensed by the Acupuncture Board of Examiners. The laws of several other Arizona licensing boards prohibit a person from using any words, initials, or symbols that would lead the public to believe the person is licensed to practice medicine in Arizona.

The profession in Arizona is currently determining how the law might be changed so as to overturn this situation. To date, no practitioners are being affected by this ruling.
