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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
