Pharmacist Licensure

Kathie Lueke, Program Manager 

Medical and Specialized Health

There are three methods of licensure to practice pharmacy in Nebraska:

  1. By Examination
  • a new pharmacy graduate who is not licensed in another state and wishes for Nebraska to be his/her state of original licensure;
  • for a pharmacist who does not meet the reciprocity requirements; or
  • foreign pharmacy graduate who is not licensed in the United States.
  1. By Score Transfer
  • This method is for a person who will be obtaining his/her pharmacist license in another state by exam, but will also become licensed in Nebraska within three years from the date he/she sits for the NAPLEX. It requires that the applicant request a Score Transfer through the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) within 90 days after he/she sits for the North American Pharmacist Licensing Examination (NAPLEX).
  1. By Reciprocity
  • This method requires that the applicant has been licensed and working in another state as a pharmacist OR enrolled in a residency program which requires a state license. The license must be from a state that offers reciprocity to Nebraska graduates (contact this office for reciprocity requirements from California).

All methods require that the applicant obtain a passing score of at least 75 on the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination (MPJE) for Nebraska. Applicants by Examination and Score Transfer must also obtain a passing score of at least 75 on the NAPLEX.

Foreign Pharmacy Graduates— must obtain the Foreign Pharmacy Graduate Examination Certification (FPGEC) through NABP before seeking licensure in Nebraska.
