New Haven pharmacists are advanced licensed professionals who hold the ultimate responsibility at a pharmacy. They are required to check overall prescriptions that have been filled by technicians to assure their occurrence and are also responsible for patient safety and education.
When Your License is at Risk
Many pharmacy schools are dual degree programs, which means that a New Haven pharmacist will earn their bachelor’s degree alongside their PharmD over a period of 6-7 years. After completion of the schooling required a pharmacist must then take two licensing exams. The first exam is the North American Pharmacist Licensure Exam and in Bridgeport, a Pharmacist must also take the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination and pass with at least a 75% or better. After passing these exams, a pharmacist is legally licensed to practice; however, a license can be revoked by the following situations:
HIPAA violations. If a pharmacist fails to safeguard patient confidentiality, this could result in the revocation or suspension of license.
Criminal convictions. If a pharmacist is convicted of a felony, the Board has the ability to revoke a license upon imprisonment.
Fraud. Fraud, deceptive billing, or defrauding medicare/medicaid/other insurance could mean the revocation of a pharmaceutical career.
