About Us

The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1904. Working with our members – the state boards of pharmacy – we help support patient and prescription drug safety, through examinations that assess pharmacist competency, pharmacist licensure transfer and verification services, and various pharmacy accreditation programs.

Our membership and staff combine diverse skills and backgrounds, which helps us create innovative programs that meet the public health protection needs of today – with an eye on the future.


The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) is the independent, international, and impartial Association that assists its member boards in protecting the public health.


Innovating and collaborating today for a safer public health tomorrow.

NABP is governed by our Executive Committee, which consists of 4 officers and 8 members. We support and work with our members to protect the public health. Our members consist of the 50 United States state boards of pharmacy, as well as the boards in District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and 10 Canadian provinces. The boards of pharmacy are divided into 8 geographical districts to better consider important regional issues and communicate with regional boards. Our Constitution and Bylaws direct our operations and activities allowing us to follow our guiding principles.
