Please refer to the Board of Pharmacy rules regarding preceptor requirements for registration at:


Preceptor Registration


Preceptor Renewal

In order to renew your registration as a preceptor, you will need to provide proof of having completed an acceptable CE program. For programs offered by ACPE-approved providers, log in to the CPE Monitor website and obtain a copy of your certificate of completion. For providers not approved by ACPE, you will need to obtain documentation from the provider that certifies your completion of the CE.


Preceptor Continuing Education

The following resources offer preceptor continuing education programs that meet the Board’s CE requirements. From time-to-time, the Board may change the resources on the list. Please note that to be acceptable as preceptor CE, the program must focus on educating or training students, pharmacy law, or patient safety.

  • The University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy
  • The Pharmacist’s Letter Preceptor Training and Resource Network
  • Power-Pak C.E.
  • CEImpact (Journal Club programs are not accepted as preceptor CE)
  • American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP)
  • American Pharmacists Association
  • Minnesota Pharmacists Association (MPhA)
  • Minnesota Society of Health-System Pharmacists (MSHP)
  • Postgraduate Healthcare Education, LLC

There are numerous other resources available for preceptor CE. If a course is preceptor related and approved by ACPE or the Board, you do not need to submit a Continuing Education Approval Form. If you are not sure if a program meets the Board’s requirements, contact the Board at 651-201-2825 or pharmacy.board@state.mn.us. 

To have a program approved by the Board, submit the Continuing Education Approval Form within 90 days of attending the course. Indicate on the form that you want the program considered for preceptor CE credit. As noted above, the program should focus on educating or training students, pharmacy law, or patient safety. Requests and required information should be submitted to pharmacy.board@state.mn.us.
