SWOSU College of Pharmacy Gets 100% Pass Rate Results

Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s College of Pharmacy in Weatherford received excellent news from the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP).

The college’s graduates had 100% pass rates on both the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX) and Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination (MPJE) for the first trimester of 2015.

The NAPLEX is the pharmacy profession’s national licensure exam that measures a candidate’s knowledge of the practice of pharmacy and is one component of the licensure process for a prospective pharmacist. The MPJE is the law exam for pharmacy and combines federal and state specific questions to test the pharmacy jurisprudence knowledge of the prospective pharmacists.

Dr. Dennis Thompson, dean of the SWOSU College of Pharmacy, said the NAPLEX is the single best outcome measure for pharmacy programs.  The national pass rate on the NAPLEX for this trimester was 84.96%.  Scores are reported from NABP three times each year.
