Boards of Pharmacy and NABP: Partnering to Protect Public Health
Through the work of the boards of pharmacy, NABP members protect the public health by promoting the highest standards of pharmacy practice. This pledge to uphold health and safety regulations is the basis for all board pursuits, and through our programs and services, we aim to support the boards in keeping that promise to the public.
Our membership is composed of 54 active members and 11 associate members. To find out more about the governance and member composition, visit the About section.
We support our member boards of pharmacy by offering:
Examinations that assess pharmacists’ competency to practice pharmacy, providing boards a uniform, high-quality solution when making a determination of competence. During the application process, our exam eligibility service allows us to confirm candidates’ eligibility to ensure state board requirements are met
The pharmacist Electronic Licensure Transfer Program® that alleviates the administrative burden on boards by verifying pharmacists’ applications for license transfer
Volunteer opportunities to serve on an NABP committee or task force
We provide many other resources to assist the boards of pharmacy as they work to protect the public health each day.
