About the Board
The North Dakota State Board of Integrative Health Care was established in 2011 to protect the citizens of the state by regulating the practice of naturopathic medicine, music therapy, and licensed acupuncturists. The Board licenses Naturopathic Doctors, music therapists, and licensed acupuncturists, and disciplines them if they violate the state statutes regarding each profession.
North Dakota has a 2 year licensing cycle that expires December 31st in each odd numbered year. Licenses renew on December 31st every odd-numbered year. The renewal fee is $400 for active status and $200 for inactive status.
Every naturopath who has been licensed by the board shall renew the license by remitting a renewal fee on or before December 31st of each odd-numbered year and completing the questionnaire provided by the board. For applicants who receive an initial license after July first in an odd-numbered year, the license will be deemed to be automatically renewed on December 31st for an additional two years without payment of an additional renewal fee.
The applicant for renewal shall certify on the questionnaire that the continuing education requirements have been or will be met by December 31st. The applicant must keep records of completed continuing education.
A license renewal application received on or after January first of an even-numbered year is a late renewal and requires a new completed application form, the renewal fee, plus a late fee set by the board.
Proof of appropriate continuing education hours must be presented.
A license that has not been renewed by December 31st in an odd-numbered year is a lapsed license.

40 Continuing Education credits are required per biennial licensing cycle. Of the 40 credits, 5 must be on pharmacology. Credits must meet BIHC approval.
