SEPTEMBER 5, 2017

**IMPORTANT** UPDATE FOR PHARMACISTS ON 2018 LICENSE RENEWAL PROCESS.  As pharmacists are aware, the Board of Pharmacy is changing over to a new information technology system, which will be used for 2018 license renewals.  To complete online license renewal for 2018, pharmacists will not have to enter their CE course titles or numbers.  Rather, pharmacists will attest that they have completed the requisite CE requirements for renewal.  It is, of course, imperative that pharmacists truthfully attest to having completed the requisite CE requirements for renewal.  For more information about CE requirement changes that go into effect January 1, 2018, pharmacists are directed to this FAQ:  http://www.ncbop.org/faqs/Pharmacist/CEFAQChangesEff010118.pdf.

 


 

MARCH 2016

BOARD OF PHARMACY AND UNC ESHELMAN SCHOOL OF PHARMACY PARTNER TO PROVIDE PHARMACISTS WITH A NO-COST CONTINUING EDUCATION COURSE ON USE OF THE NORTH CAROLINA CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES REPORTING SYSTEM.  The Board of Pharmacy and The Academy at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy have partnered to build a continuing education program for pharmacists on the North Carolina Controlled Substances Reporting System (“CSRS”).  The on-line CE module educates pharmacists on the process for activating CSRS access, the menu system for acquiring data in the CSRS, and, perhaps most importantly, provides a series of interactive case scenarios designed to guide pharmacists in the appropriate use of CSRS data in various practice settings.  To access the program, which is available without cost to pharmacists, please click the link below and complete each section of the website. At the end of the program, you will have an opportunity to take a post-assessment test and claim one (1) hour of distance based CE credit. Link:  https://learn.pharmacy.unc.edu/csrs/#/csrs_home.
