BY MAIL - Using the paper form, payment must be by CASHIER’S CHECK or MONEY ORDER.  NO PERSONAL OR BUSINESS CHECKS, NO CASH AND NO CREDIT CARDS ACCEPTED BY MAIL.  **Payment is made out to: Nevada State Board of Pharmacy.

If you elect to use the form, we suggest you submit your completed application and fee to the Board office no later than October 11, 2016.  If it is important for you to know when your form is received at the Board office, we suggest you use a mailing service with tracking options.  Do NOT call the board office to inquire.  Licenses renewed with the form will be mailed within 2-3 weeks, depending on the volume of forms received. 

 

 IN PERSON - RENO OFFICE ONLY.  If you renew in person, payment must be by Cashier’s Check or Money Order. NO PERSONAL OR BUSINESS CHECKS, NO CASH & NO CREDIT CARDS. 

*If you have mailed the form and fee – DO NOT RENEW ON LINE – No refunds will be issued if you pay twice.

*You may pay for multiple renewals with one cashier’s check or money order.  If paying for more than 10 renewals, please attach a list with names and registration numbers

When must my renewal application be sent?

All renewal applications must be submitted on-line OR POSTMARKED by the United States Postal Service on or before October 31, 2016. Renewal applications submitted on-line OR postmarked after October 31, 2016 will be assessed a late fee. Nevada has NO grace period.

Your renewal information is mailed to you 45 days prior to your expiration date and it is your choice as to when you complete that duty. This expiration date is to avoid late fees ONLY – do NOT expect to be considered active on November 1 if you mail it on the expiration date. If you choose to wait until the last day then YOU will be accountable to your employer, NOT the pharmacy board. An on-line submission will update in real time. You may verify the expiration date in the Public Search.

*Any renewal application sent without being 100% complete will be returned and will not be considered received until it arrives at the board office with complete information, resulting in a delay of renewing your registration.  

Common reasons renewal applications are returned

*Renewal fee not enclosed.

*Renewal fee was something other than a Cashier’s Check or Money Order.

*Renewal application postmarked after October 31, 2016 without enclosing the late fee.

*Marking “I Have” to any numbered question and not providing an explanation and supporting

documentation.

*Incomplete renewal applications, i.e., signature and/or date missing, or other sections not completed.

*A copy of the renewal application was sent instead of the original. Signature must be original

(no copies or stamps accepted.)

NOTICE TO PHARMACEUTICAL TECHNICIANS ONLY

Employment is NOT required to renew your Technician registration. Renewing technicians are required to

complete one hour of an approved Nevada Law program prior to renewal and a copy must be maintained. If employed, a copy must be on file in the pharmacy. Trainees are required to be registered at EACH work

location. There has been confusion expressed regarding requirements for technicians and “continuing

education”. Nevada law requires that you perform 12-hours of in-service training during the 2-year period

immediately preceding the renewal of your registration. Your managing pharmacist must approve and maintain

a written record of your training and those records are to be maintained in the pharmacy and will be checked

during the annual pharmacy inspection. Nevada law also provides that a technician may substitute the

completion of the continuing education necessary for recertification by the Pharmacy Technician Certification

Board for the biennial in-service training. Should this option be chosen, documentation must be maintained in

the pharmacy for inspection. The Nevada Law program may NOT be substituted by any other program.

DO NOT SEND YOUR RECORDS TO THE BOARD WITH YOUR RENEWAL FORM. ANY SUCH

RECORDS WILL BE DISCARDED.

NOTICE TO ALL PRACTITIONERS

Please be aware that SB 459 was signed into law by Governor Sandoval in 2015. It requires prescribers of

narcotics to review the Prescription Monitoring Program’s profile for each patient prior to prescribing the

medication in most cases.
