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?
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 CPE providers accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) have already transitioned their systems to transmit data relating to completion of CE courses to NABP. Because they are now requiring licensees to submit their NABP e-Profile ID in order to obtain CPE credit, we are encouraging licensees to obtain an e-Profile ID with NABP.
