Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is an approach to lifelong learning being discussed as a potential model for pharmacists in the United States. CPD does not replace continuing education (CE), but CE will be an essential component of CPD. Its purpose is to ensure that pharmacists maintain their knowledge, skills, and competencies to practice throughout their careers in their specific area of practice, to improve the pharmacist’s personal performance, and ultimately to improve patient and public health outcomes.
The three colleges of pharmacy in North Carolina have an agreement with the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy (NCBOP) to provide CE credit to pharmacists who precept student-pharmacists. To receive credit you must registered with a college of pharmacy as a preceptor. Pharmacists who precept one or more student-pharmacists will receive 5 hours of credit. These hours are recognized by the NCBOP only and are not ACPE accredited; therefore, there is no ACPE UPN assigned to preceptor credit hours. Please consult other boards of pharmacy before attempting to use these hours for credit in other states.
