Renewal of a License

REMINDER NOTICE:

Licenses expiring October 2016 will receive renewal forms and instructions Mid-September.  If you do NOT receive your form/instructions by October 1st, please email us at: LHEDARIA@PHARMACY.NV.GOV  We will NOT email renewal forms for current licenses, not yet expired, prior to October 1st.  

Some license types can VERIFY the address on file by using the Public License Search feature.  If you have moved, please notify us by clicking HERE and follow the prompts.  Please allow 10 days for the change to take place.  Any address changes received after August 15, 2016 will not be reflected on the out-going renewal form.  Please ensure your mail is being forwarded by the Post Office.  If the Post Office fails to deliver your form by October 1, 2016, then it is your responsibility to obtain the form by emailing us.  We usually respond within 3 days at the latest.

If you plan on renewing your license using the paper form and a Money Order, rather than on-line…….Please READ……Common Reasons Renewal Applications are Returned:

  • Renewal fee is NOT enclosed 
  • Renewal fee was something other than a Cashier’s Check/Money Order
    (NO Personal or Business Checks Accepted, NO Cash!!)
     
  • Renewal application was postmarked after October 31, 2016 and did NOT include the late fee 
  • Marking “I Have” to any numbered discipline question and failing to include an explanation & supporting documentation 
  • Renewal form is incomplete, ie. signature/date missing or other sections NOT completed 
  • A copy of the renewal application was submitted rather than the original.  Signature must be original (no copies/stamps accepted)

Expired Licenses

All expired pharmacists licenses must be renewed by mail with a Renewal Form and a Cashier’s Check or Money Order. The on-line feature is not available at this time. If you do not have a form, please email your request, including your Name and License Number to LHEDARIA@PHARMACY.NV.GOV and your renewal form will be emailed to you.

**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 it will be checked during the annual pharmacy inspection. 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. 

Things You Should Know
