  8. Q: May I carry over Continuing Education (CE) credits from a previous renewal period?
    Answer: You may carry over maximum of ten (10) Continuing Education (CE) credits to be counted toward your 2013 renewal IF the following conditions are met:

    -The CE credits were earned during the last six (6) months of the 2011 biennial
    renewal period (November 1, 2010 through April 30, 2011)

    AND

    -The CE credits were NOT previously reported to the Board.

  9. 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.”
