Continuing Education Requirements for Pharmacists
Continuing Education (CE) Reporting is due by September 30th of every even year.
Pharmacists need to complete 30 hours of continuing education (CE) every two years. If you are a new registrant you can log into your online account
to find out how many hours of CE you will need to complete.
Approved Continuing Education
The Minnesota Board of Pharmacy accepts programs that relate to the practice of pharmacy (see MN Rule 6800.1500
). Course that are accepted:
- Courses approved by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).
- Courses offered by providers that have been pre-approved by the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy. These are providers that have been assigned a provider number.
- Courses that are neither ACPE approved or given by providers that have not been approved by the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy, but relate to the practice of pharmacy.
At this time Minnesota Board of Pharmacy does not require any state specific CE. We only require that you complete the required number of CE’s.
