As a new service to the state boards of pharmacy, NABP now has the capability to display candidate scores for the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination® (NAPLEX®) and Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination® (MPJE®) on its Web site. By displaying these scores on a secure Web page, NABP hopes to assist the boards of pharmacy by reducing the number of candidate calls to the boards, thereby allowing the boards to devote their resources to other tasks.
In addition, candidates will have the convenience of checking their scores online, typically within seven business days of completing their examinations at Pearson VUE testing centers. To retrieve their scores, candidates must enter their first and last name, date of birth, and last four digits of their Social Security number, and choose the state for which they are seeking a score report. Upon submission of the required data, all available NAPLEX and MPJE scores for the specified state and candidate will be displayed. Score information provided through the new interface does not constitute an official score report, and candidates will still need to obtain such information directly from their board of pharmacy, if necessary.
“NABP is pleased to be able to offer this additional service to its member boards,” states NABP President William T. Winsley, MS, RPh. “Making scores available on our Web site for informational purposes should alleviate inquiries to the boards, freeing up valuable staff time for important regulatory matters while protecting the integrity of official score reports.”
At press time, 17 boards of pharmacy utilized this service. NABP can add additional state boards of pharmacy into the process at any time. State boards of pharmacy interested in implementing this new benefit may contact NABP at 847/391-4406.
