If you need information about obtaining your required NABP e-Profile Identification number to validate your continuing education credits, log into the portal in the Pharmacists section of the NABP Web site at NABP – Pharmacists. You will then need to find the “CPE Monitor” on the page. This is where you can obtain your number. Technicians can obtain their ID by using the portal in the Pharmacy Technicians section of the NABP Web site at NABP – Technicians. This number, as well as your month and day of birth, is now required to process all statements of continuing education credit from all CE providers.
The Mission of Sullivan University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences Office of Lifelong Professional Development (OLPD) is to support the advancement of pharmacy practice through provision of lifelong learning activities that are current, relevant, and based on educational best-practice models.
Sullivan University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing education opportunities for all pharmacists and technicians.
OLPD currently offers three types of continuing education.
- Live Programs for Pharmacists – This type of program involves coming to a specific site for a set number of hours to listen to a series of speakers on predetermined topics. Participants are required to fill out a program evaluation form and attend all portions of the program for which they would like to receive continuing education credit.
- Home Study Courses for Pharmacists – These online courses allow students to work at their own pace, without having to attend a live event. Each course consists of written material covering a given subject, along with a post-test. Some home study courses also include an audio and/or video lectures.
- Infusion Therapy Education Certificate for Nurses – Ohio Nurses Association offers a certificate program intended to help you in developing specific skills and knowledge for personal and/or professional development. At the completion of the program, participants earn continuing education credit and a certificate of achievement.
- CPE Monitor is an online repository for continuing pharmacy education for pharmacists and technicians managed by ACPE and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy. For CE credit to be posted to CPE Monitor, CE participants must provide their NABP e-Profile ID number and month and day (MMDD) of their birthday to the CE provider. The provider will post the credit to CPE Monitor, where pharmacists and technicians can view and print their CE credit. The state boards of pharmacy will also be able to access the CE records for auditing purposes
- If you have forgotten your NABP number, use the My e-Profile ID Quick Search
According to the requirements of the Kentucky State Board of Pharmacy, if a student becomes licensed within 1 year of completing his or her pharmacy education, he or she will not be required to have CE for the first licensing period. For example, if you are a 2013 graduate, you will be responsible for collecting CE credits after February 28, 2014.
