As part of the requirement of becoming a licensed pharmacist, students are required to take the NAPLEX and MPJE examinations. The NAPLEX, or North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination, measures a candidate’s knowledge of the practice of pharmacy. It is just one component of the licensure process and is used by the boards of pharmacy as part of their assessment of a candidate’s competence to practice as a pharmacist.
NAPLEX pass rates are available for each of the United States schools and colleges of pharmacy can be found by visiting NABP. The data includes all candidates who reported graduating from one of the reported schools/colleges of pharmacy and took the exam within the same year.
