ASK THE BUSINESS LICENSE GURU

By David Yount

Question:

“Do pharmacists have to renew their licenses?”

Answer:

Every U.S. state requires a licensed resident pharmacist to renew annually or biennially (every 2 years). Requirements can be complicated when a pharmacist is licensed in other states as a nonresident pharmacist, and prescriptions are mailed.

Typically, resident pharmacist licenses must be renewed every one-to-three years, and most renewal applications may be filed online. The date of renewal is either a fixed annual date or based on the date of issuance of the original license.

A license holder must be diligent about properly renewing his or her license or may face serious penalties for noncompliance.
