In the near future, pharmacists who complete ACPE accredited CPE programs will NOT receive a printed CPE certificate from CPE providers. To receive CPE credit, those pharmacists will first need to register and create an NABP e-Profile with CPE Monitor, if they have not done so already, and provide their unique e-Profile ID and date of birth (mmdd) to the ACPE-accredited CPE provider. If pharmacists wish to receive credit for ACPE accredited programs, they must register at www.MyCPEmonitor.net for their unique e-Profile ID. The ID number is a requirement of ACPE, not the Oklahoma State Board of Pharmacy. View CE Update for more information.

Advanced Practice Nurses with authority to prescribe C-III thru C-V controlled substances can prescribe up to 30 days supply. The 30 days supply may be a combination of the initial fill and a number of refills which adds up to the 30 days supply. For example, a prescription for a 10 day supply could have up to 2 refills which would equal a 30 days supply. This change is a result of a change in the Oklahoma regulations effective July 1, 2008. [Note: Physician's Assistants may prescribe up to a 30 day supply as an individual prescription, but are not allowed to prescribe refills on controlled substances.]
