Delegates from the member boards of pharmacy adopted four resolutions during the 120th National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®) Annual Meeting, held in Fort Worth, TX, on May 14-17, 2024. The resolutions address the following:

  • Drug Shortages. NABP will collaborate with organizations, including industry, federal agencies, pharmacy associations, and pharmacy benefit managers to develop additional strategies and technological tools to address drug shortages.
  • Expanding Access to NABP Competency Assessment Examinations. NABP will convene a task force to examine feasible options for NABP and state boards of pharmacy to expand access to NABP competency examination administration processes. Such options may include, but are not limited to, providing more testing center choices, enhancing communication between schools and colleges of pharmacy and NABP to alleviate delays in the posting of graduate transcripts, and allowing candidates to take the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination® and/or Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination® prior to anticipated graduation.
  • Development of National Forum for Pharmacy Professional Recovery Programs. NABP will collaborate with other interested stakeholders to convene a forum of pharmacist recovery programs and/or other state recovery programs to discuss common topics of interest, issues, and concerns.

Additionally, a recognition resolution honoring members of the Association who have passed away was unanimously approved.

The complete text of the resolutions will be available in the News section on the NABP website.
