CPE Monitor Service
CPE and License Renewal
According to the 2013 Survey of Pharmacy Law, 53 boards of pharmacy require pharmacists to participate in continuing pharmacy education (CPE) activities as a prerequisite for license renewal.
Set up Your NABP e-Profile!
CPE Monitor, through the collaborative efforts of NABP, the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and ACPE providers, allows you to electronically keep track of CPE credits from ACPE-accredited providers. To view and track these credits, you must first set up an NABP e-Profile, obtain your NABP e-Profile ID, and register for CPE Monitor. You may do so by clicking on the "Log in to CPE Monitor" link below. ACPE-accredited providers will ask for your e-Profile ID and your date of birth in order to properly record your CPE credits through the system. Note: Some providers are still in the process of transitioning their systems to CPE Monitor.
When you click on the link above you will be brought to a secure Web page. A secure or encrypted Web site address begins with HTTPS rather than HTTP, and often includes an icon in the browser such as a padlock.
How CPE Monitor Works
You will receive a unique ID after setting up your e-Profile with NABP and registering for CPE Monitor. Many ACPE-accredited providers have transitioned their systems to CPE Monitor, which means that you will need to begin providing your NABP e-Profile ID and date of birth to those providers when you register for CPE or submit a request for credit. The system will then direct electronic data from ACPE-accredited providers to ACPE and then to NABP, ensuring that CPE credit is officially verified by the providers. Once information is received by NABP, you will be able to log in to access information about your completed CPE.
In addition, it is anticipated that in 2013 boards of pharmacy will have the option of requesting reports on their licensees, eventually eliminating the need for you to send paper copies of CPE statements of credit to the boards for activities from ACPE-accredited providers.
In Phase 2 of the CPE Monitor initiative, CPE Monitor will add a function to track CPE from providers not accredited by ACPE in addition to CPE from ACPE-accredited providers. Until Phase 2 is completed, pharmacists and technicians will need to submit proof of non-ACPE accredited CPE directly to the board of pharmacy when required to do so.
ACPE sets standards for the education of pharmacists to prepare them for the delivery of pharmacist-provided patient care. ACPE is the national agency for the accreditation of professional degree programs in pharmacy and providers of CPE.
