Question: This is my first renewal after obtaining my pharmacist license by examination (or score transfer). Do I have to submit CE? How should I fill out the CE section on the renewal form? What dates do I need CE on my next renewal?Answer:
New pharmacists obtaining license by examination or score transfer in Iowa are exempt from continuing education requirements for their first license renewal. On the renewal application, answer "yes" to Item 10 and proceed to Item 12.
You will need to obtain CE for your next renewal. Programs must be completed between April (prior to the effective date of your license renewal) and June 30 of the year your license expires.
