Community Pharmacy

Any person or entity intending to establish, operate, or maintain a pharmacy (a facility where drugs and devices are dispensed) in Nebraska, must first obtain a pharmacy license from the Department.

NOTE:  Hospitals engaged in the compounding and dispensing of drugs and devices, pursuant to chart orders for persons registered as patients and within the confines of the hospital, may dispense under the hospital’s license without the need of a separate pharmacy license.  However, if the hospital is dispensing pursuant to medical orders or prescriptions to persons other than those registered as patients and within the confines of the hospital, a community pharmacy license is required.
As set forth in Title 175 Chapter 8 of the Regulations Governing Licensure of Pharmacies, a license is issued only for the premises and persons named in the application and is not transferable or assignable. Change of ownership (sale, whether of stock, title, or assets, lease, discontinuance of operations) or change of premises terminates the license. The new owner(s) must apply for a new pharmacy license.
Important Reminder for Pharmacies in 2017
Neb. Rev. Stat.§ 38-2890(1) requires that in order to be employed as a pharmacy technician, if registered on or after January 1, 2016, he/she shall be certified by a state or national certifying body which is approved by the board within one year of being registered.
