Latebreakers: NABP restarts NAPLEX exam

October 22, 2007

After a two-month delay, the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy is again offering the North American Pharmacist Licensure Exam.

After a two-month layoff, NABP is once again offering the North American Pharmacist Licensure Exam (NAPLEX) to graduating pharmacy students. In August, NABP announced that it had temporarily stopped offering NAPLEX and the Georgia Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination (MPJE) following allegations that a University of Georgia professor may have improperly shared test questions. NABP is continuing to pursue litigation against the University of Georgia School of Pharmacy and professor Flynn Warren Jr., M.S., although a gag order has been issued in the case. According to NABP, the Georgia MPJE may not be reinstated until late November or early December.
