    • Overview

      The Florida Board of Pharmacy now requires all pharmacists to complete a 2 hour, board approved continuing education course on the Validation of Prescriptions for Controlled Substances. Pharmacists seeking license renewal in the state of Florida will need this course prior to the September 2017 renewal. This activity will meet these requirements by providing an in depth review of Florida Statute 64B16-27.831, which covers Validation of Prescriptions for Controlled Substances.
