A Testing and Certifying Agency for the Chiropractic Profession

The CBCN is a specialty board established specifically to certify chiropractic physicians in the area of Clinical Nutrition.

Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition

The Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition (CBCN) was founded in 2008 to continue the specialty board originally established by the ACA in 1986, and is the credentialing and certifying agency of the chiropractic profession.


To secure, protect, and advance clinical nutrition in the chiropractic profession while serving to enhance the health of the people we serve and the population at large.

The CBCN operates under the auspices of the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) and as a member of the American Board of Chiropractic Specialties with full autonomy in the areas of testing standards and procedures.


A diplomate of the Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition (DCBCN) is a licensed chiropractic physician who has successfully completed a post‐doctoral program in nutrition of at least three hundred (300) credit hours from a chiropractic college or university, institution, foundation or agency whose program is approved by an accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. The topics of study required are delineated in the bylaws of the CBCN. In addition, the diplomat has successfully passed the certifying examination administered by the CBCN.
