Tennessee Board Administrator Samara Watkins says jurisprudence assessments are a crucial requirement for mental health professionals in order to protect the safety of the public. “We want them to learn the ethics, rules, and laws here in Tennessee,” she says. ”Not only does jurisprudence protect the patient, it also protects practicing professionals. Also, laws vary from state to state. With a jurisprudence assessment, you know that you are practicing under the right guidelines and rules, and you are handling things the proper way as per Tennessee statutes. The online platform simplifies the jurisprudence assessment process and has also made it more accessible,” Watkins says. According to a Maryland Law Assessment candidate, the navigation on the platform is easy. “The format is intuitive. And I could take the course at my own pace, in the comfort of my own home, and I didn’t have to schedule it!”
