Requirements for CE Credit
After creating your profile, attending/viewing the presentation and successfully passing (80% or higher) post-test (if required), you can complete the evaluation to claim CPE credit. Complete the evaluation by answering every question. Do not leave any question unanswered. If you do not have a comment or do not feel you want to answer the question, please put “NA” in the space provided. IMPORTANT: You must complete all the above requirements by 30 DAYS FROM PROGRAM. Failure to do so will result in a loss of Continuing Pharmacy Education Credit. A system wipeout clears all pending activity into CPE monitoring during this time, so it is imperative that you complete your evaluations within the allotted time frame. Entering incorrect data will result in a rejection of CPE credit by CPE Monitor. Carefully check your NABP e-Profile ID and date of birth (MMDD) to ensure this data is accurately recorded! If you have any questions regarding how to set up your NABP e-Profile and registering for the CPE Monitor service to ensure your CPE units are properly tracked for licensure, visit: http://www.nabp.net/programs/cpe-monitor/cpe-monitor-service/pharmacists.
