If your pharmacy license, pharmacist license, or technician registration is due to renew by February 28, 2021 and you recently mailed a payment or a renewal form to the board office, please contact TSBP staff as follows:

Pharmacists typically need a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree from an accredited pharmacy program. (A list of accredited programs is available from the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).)

Pharm.D. programs usually take 4 years to finish, although some programs offer a 3-year option. Others admit high school graduates into a 6-year program. Pharm.D. programs include courses in sciences, pharmacology, and pharmacy law. Students also complete supervised work experiences, sometimes referred to as internships, in settings such as hospitals and retail pharmacies.

All states require pharmacists to be licensed, although licensure requirements vary. After completing their degree, prospective pharmacists typically must pass two exams to get a license. The North American Pharmacist Licensure Exam (NAPLEX) tests pharmacy skills and knowledge and is required in all states. The Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Exam (MPJE) or state-specific test on pharmacy law is also required. Applicants also must complete a state-specified number of hours as an intern. To maintain licensure, pharmacists must complete continuing education.

Communication skills. Pharmacists frequently must explain to patients about how to take medication and what its potential side effects are. They also may need to convey information to pharmacy technicians, interns, and other healthcare staff.

If you don't see a price, it means the drug isn't covered. Your best value is the option that can save you the most money. You can also check the price difference between having your medications delivered by mail or picking them up at the pharmacy, plus compare costs at different pharmacies in your network. And check out more ways to save by reviewing drug savings opportunities personalized just for you.

A federal law enacted in 2019 required all federal agencies to undertake review of various informal guidance documents. As a result of this review, the federal Drug Enforcement Administration ("DEA") removed informal guidance from its website concerning changes to prescriptions for schedule II controlled substances. The National Association of Chain Drug Stores ("NACDS") issued a letter describing a private phone call with DEA officials. The letter indicated that, despite the DEA's historical guidance permitting pharmacist annotations to schedule II controlled substance prescriptions, all prescriptions for schedule II controlled substances must now arrive at the pharmacy with all elements required by 21 C.F.R. 1306.05(A) in final form.

The Georgia Board of Pharmacy ("Board") seeks to remind pharmacy licensees in this time of emergency that the Board's Policy #14 provides for the refill of certain medications for up to 30 days for persons in the areas covered by the State of Emergency declared by Governor Kemp. This policy is consistent with O.C.G.A. 26-4-80(j) and the Governor's Emergency Declaration . This statement is consistent with previous hurricane and severe weather emergency statements issued by the Board.

Emergency regulations pursuant to 2022 legislation authorizing pharmacists to initiate treatment for tobacco cessation for patients 18 years of age or older became effective February 21, 2023. Pharmacists may initiate treatment in accordance with the regulations and statewide protocols listed below. Please note that the protocols for vaccine administration to minors and the ordering of coronavirus tests do not become effective until the expiration of the PREP Act. Meanwhile, pharmacy personnel may continue to act in accordance with the PREP Act or standing order.

An educational video for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to help them identify the warning signs of prescription drug abuse and diversion when dispensing prescriptions was created by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy and the Anti-Diversion Industry Working Group, a consortium of pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors. This 12-minute video, entitled, "Red Flags," includes a foreword from Virginia Board of Pharmacy Executive Director, Caroline D. Juran.

PharmCAS is a centralized application service used to apply to multiple Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) programs offered by schools and colleges of pharmacy. The service is designed for first-year professional Pharm.D. degree programs. PharmCAS provides access to individual pharmacy degree program admission requirements in an easy-to-find and standardized format.

NORTH CAROLINA MEDICAID REMINDS PHARMACY PROVIDERS WITH EXPIRED NCTRACKS CREDENTIALS OF THE PROCESS FOR RENEWING THEM. Staff at the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has requested the Board to notify pharmacy providers of the following:

STATE AND FEDERAL PHARMACY LAW APPLICABLE TO WALK-IN IV THERAPY CLINICS.

This statement sets forth North Carolina law governing the need for pharmacy permits and the preparation of sterile drug products.

Pharmacy students. The substantial majority of pharmacy interns will be students who are currently enrolled in an ACPE-accredited school of pharmacy. Detailed registration instructions for incoming and currently-enrolled students are found here. Please consult those instructions before beginning the registration process. Note that you will need to have three documents for upload to complete a registration: (1) a photograph of yourself (passport type); (2) proof of enrollment from your school of pharmacy (please consult with the appropriate person(s) at your school to obtain the proof of enrollment); and (3) a signed (manual, not electronic) copy of a FERPA Waiver (found here) that will authorize the Board of Pharmacy to obtain certain enrollment and academic status information from your school of pharmacy. Note: While the majority of pharmacy students who are acquiring practical experience in North Carolina will be enrolled in a North Carolina-based school of pharmacy, not all will. The intern registration requirement applies to all enrolled pharmacy students acquiring practical experience in North Carolina, whether the school is located in North Carolina or in another state.

FGPEC-Holding Graduates of a Foreign School of Pharmacy. A graduate of a foreign school of pharmacy who has successfully completed the Foreign Pharmacy Graduate Equivalency Examination and the Test of English as a Foreign Language is eligible for pharmacy intern status and must register to acquire required practical experience.
