NEVADA SENATE BILL 393 (SB393)

In 2015, Nevada Senate Bill 393 was passed, which allows non-Nevada licensed practitioners to teach and supervise at a school of Oriental medicine in Nevada. The Oriental medicine school should have at least candidacy status for institutional accreditation from the ACAOM or its successor organization. SB393, therefore, allows Wongu to University to have access not only to local OMDs, but also to senior faculty from nearby cities, such as Los Angeles and San Diego.
