Calculation of Pharmacists’ Continuing Education Hours

Pharmacists’ Continuing Education hours are calculated at a rate of 1.25 hours per month. Each cycle runs from November 1 of one odd year to October 31 of the following odd year. You are exempt from CE for the first 2 years after graduation only.

Example 1

If your license expires on October 31, 2009 and you graduated in June 2008, then you would be exempt from CE until June 2010 and would not owe any CE to renew your license. 

Example 2:

If your license expires on October 31, 2009 and you graduated in May 2007, then you would calculate 1.25 hours per month from May 2009 until Oct 2009 – you would owe 7.5 hours.

Example 3:

If your license expires on October 31, 2009 and your graduation exemption period ends prior to November 1, 2007 then the calculation would be 1.25 hours per month from November 1, 2007 through October 31, 2009 – you would owe the full 30 hours. 

Continuing Education Requirements

All pharmacists living or practicing in the state of Nevada are required to obtain one hour of approved law CE in order to renew their pharmacists license. There are two ways to obtain the Nevada Law CE:

  • Pharmacists can attend a live program where someone from the board is presenting the information. We will post those to the web site as we become aware of them. 
  • Pharmacists can attend one full day of a board meeting. In addition to the one hour of law it will also provide three hours of acceptable Continuing Education and certificates will be handed out at the meeting.

Nevada WebIZ

Nevada WebIZoffers training sessions in locations around the state. Attendance is recommended for all new Nevada WebIZ users. All Nevada WEBIZ Training sessions are offered at no cost.

Continuing education units are available for nurses and pharmacists that complete a Nevada WebIZ training session!! Periodically, “view-only” classes are offered- some, scheduled through the Nevada Registry, provide continuing education credit for child care providers!

Nevada WebIZ User Training Opportunities!

Nevada State Law requires all immunizations administered in Nevada to be reported to Nevada WebIZ, the statewide immunization registry. The registry is easy to use, but training is always recommended to ensure the best experience possible. The Nevada WebIZ team offers a variety of user training options throughout Nevada each month. Attendance of New User Training entitles students to 2-3 CE hours through the Board of Pharmacy (as well as the Board of Nursing), depending on the type of class chosen. Nevada WebIZ plans to request CE’s be granted for attendance at Advanced Reports Training as well. Register today by clicking on a link below and expand your knowledge of this wonderful tool!
