National Association of Boards of Pharmacy - CPE Monitor Service

Provided through the collaborative efforts of the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and ACPE-accredited providers, the CPE Monitor Service allows you to electronically keep track of continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credits from ACPE-accredited providers. ACPE-accredited providers, like ACCP, are responsible for transmitting this information to NABP to be stored in the CPE Monitor system. Statements of credit will be available at CPE Monitor, nabp.pharmacy/cpe-monitor-service/, within 2–3 business days after completion of this activity. For more information on CPE Monitor please visit nabp.pharmacy/cpe-monitor-service/.

To transfer these credits to CPE Monitor on your behalf your NABP e-Profile ID Number and date of birth must be listed on your ACCP account. To verify or update this information in your ACCP account, visit Licensure/Certification. Be sure to save your changes at the bottom of the page.

Some international pharmacists do not use the CPE Monitor service. To verify or update this information in your ACCP account, visit Licensure/Certification. Check the box “I am an international pharmacist or I am not licensed to practice in the United States, and do not have an NABP e-Profile ID.” Be sure to save your changes at the bottom of the page.
