It was developed by the NABP to help individual state pharmacy boards assess an individual's competency to practice as a pharmacist.

"Congratulations to the Class of 2021 for their outstanding success on the NAPLEX! Their accomplishment is indicative of our high-quality pharmacy program, the dedication of our faculty to our students and to pharmacy education, and the aptitude and commitment of our student pharmacists," Dr. Monica Skomo, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Assessment, said.
