Checking Your CE

There’s a list that every state board of pharmacy/NABP keeps as well as BPS for those with the BCGP credential: continuing education hours. While every state has differing educational needs and requirements for pharmacists, we also realize that most licenses and CE windows for learning end at the end of the calendar year – you don’t want to forget to complete your CE hours! Check out Erin Albert's blog on how to check your credits.
