Doctor of Pharmacy students once again outrank state and national averages

Maddox Hall

The Doctor of Pharmacy Class of 2019 posted an exemplary first time pass rate on the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX) of 93.41 percent, which is above state (89.37) and national (90.59) rates. For the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination (MJPE), Campbell students posted a 89.53% first-time in-state pass rate that was above the state (89.04) and national (84.21) averages.

“Four years of hard work in and out of the classroom culminates with the National Board exams,” said Pharmacy Practice Department Chair D. Byron May (PharmD). “It’s a stressful time for them, but our students have again surpassed state and national averages. Our faculty and staff are extremely proud of the students and look forward to hearing of their continued success as pharmacy practitioners.”

The NAPLEX and MPJE are developed by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy for use by the state boards of pharmacy as part of their criteria for assessing candidates’ competence to practice pharmacy.

“Congratulations! Yet again we have demonstrated strong scores that are a testament to the hard work of our students and to our faculty’s excellent instruction and mentoring,” said CPHS Dean, Michael L. Adams (PharmD ’96, PhD). “These results continue to validate everyone’s hard work and passion for the profession.”
