Original Licensure in NH

The New Hampshire Board of Pharmacy requires the successful completion of the NAPLEX for licensure as a pharmacist in this state. In addition, the Board also requires the successful completion of a jurisprudence examination (MPJE) relative to the practice of pharmacy in New Hampshire. Questions for the law exam are developed, in part, from the New Hampshire Pharmacy Laws and Rules handbook and from the CFR 21, Part 1300 through and including Part 1307, as well as applicable sections from the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Study materials can be found here.
