Q: Do I have to register for a NABP e-Profile ID in order for my Continuing Education
(CE) credits to be accepted by the Board?
Answer: At this time, the New Jersey Board is NOT requiring pharmacists to register for a
NABP e-Profile ID; it is currently voluntary. However, many Accreditation Council
for Pharmacy Education (ACPE)-accredited CPE providers have already transitioned
their systems to transmit data and are now requiring licensees to submit their NABP
e-Profile ID and date of birth (MM/DD) in order to obtain CPE credit, and to that end,
we are encouraging licensees to obtain an e-Profile ID with NABP.
From the NABP Website: “CPE Monitor is a collaborative service from NABP and
ACPE that provides an electronic system for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians
to track their completed CPE credits. It also streamlines reporting and compliance
verification for participating boards of pharmacy.”
