The NAPLEX (or North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination) is a part of the procedure for earning a pharmacist's license in the United States. This electronic exam is administered by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP). If you are having a difficult time preparing to take the test, Varsity Tutors can refer you to an experienced NAPLEX tutor who can assist in your pursuit of academic success.
NAPLEX tutoring sessions generally concentrate on the exam's rubric, which is produced below:
- Ensuring Safe and Effective Pharmacotherapy and Health Outcomes (67%)
- Safe and Accurate Preparation, Compounding, Dispensing, and Administration of Medications and Provisions of Healthcare Products (33%)
The exam consists of 250 questions administered over a six-hour testing session, making intellectual endurance one of the most important components of NAPLEX prep. Taking practice exams during your NAPLEX tutoring sessions is one great way to get a realistic sense of what testing for six hours will feel like. The NAPLEX is administered digitally, so practice exams can also help you get a feel for its interface before the test starts. If removing this element of the unknown improves your self-confidence or mitigates test anxiety, it's definitely worth looking into!
