NABP Verify is a license monitoring service created to help member boards as they seek new ways to regulate pharmacies and pharmacists, who are playing an ever-increasingly important role in the health care system. For example, the NABP Verify program can provide additional insight and oversight of out-of-state pharmacists practicing via an interstate practice model. Participating boards can reduce administrative burden on board staff by taking advantage of the service’s ongoing verification that Verified Pharmacists maintain active licenses in good standing, pursuant to program requirements .
NABP Verify is not an authorization to practice pharmacy; it is evidence of licensure in good standing. The authorization to practice is defined by state statutes or regulations that can reference this credential as a requirement to practice in the manner described by that state. While NABP Verify can serve as a new tool to provide appropriate board oversight to enable nonresident practice models, it does not serve as an alternative to state licensure, either by examination or via endorsement, for in-person practice within a state. As always, licensure and practice decisions will remain at the sole discretion of the boards of pharmacy.
NABP Verify enables boards of pharmacy to:
- Allow for the issuance of state credentials based upon continued evidence of ongoing licensure in good standing, with little impact on their staff resources.
Develop state-specific credentials and define the practice authority via statutory, regulatory, or policy reference.
- Practice outside of these references would exceed the credential authority and require full licensure in that state.
Enable or expand board oversight of existing and/or innovative new nonresident practice models.
- NABP Verify does not serve as an alternative to state licensure, either by examination or via endorsement, for in-person practice within a state.
