The Minnesota Jurisprudence Examination is a 50-question open book examination on the laws and rules governing the practice of veterinary medicine in Minnesota. An applicant is eligible to take the Jurisprudence examination when all other requirements for licensure have been submitted, including a passing score on the NAVLE (or NBE and CCT) examination. The exam will be sent via email with a secure PDF attachment and PDF answer sheet to record your answers. There is a two-hour time limit for taking the exam. Passing score for the jurisprudence exam is 90%. Once you have completed the Jurisprudence Exam and all your documentation is in order, your file will be presented to the Board for formal license approval. Board meetings are generally held in February, May and September.

If you are a candidate with a documented disability covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and require test accommodations, please email the Board (vet.med@state.mn.us) with your request and supporting documentation. It takes time to review the documentation necessary to approve test accommodations, so submitting your application and accommodation materials early is encouraged. This allows time for you to submit any additionally requested documentation necessary for approval of your request, prior to the application deadline date.
