NNU counseling students from the graduating class of 2009 scored higher than the national average on the National Counselor Exam (NCE) by scoring well above the national mean in all eight areas of focus on the exam. In addition, NNU counseling students were above average in the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).
The NCE qualifies counselors across the nation as a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) and licenses counselors at the state level.
Northwest Nazarene University’s counseling program is nationally accredited by CACREP. Upon graduation, students in the clinical, school and marriage and family program areas have all the coursework necessary to apply for License Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Idaho.
