CPE Monitor reminders

As a reminder, official statements of continuing pharmacy education are now available only from CPE Monitor. Drug Store News CE, an ACPE-accredited provider of continuing pharmacy education, transmits all successful CPE credit completions directly to CPE Monitor. This is a requirement of all ACPE-accredited CPE providers and allows pharmacists and technicians to find all CPE credits from all accredited providers in one place.
 
To be sure that CPE credits are transmitted to CPE Monitor correctly, all pharmacists and technicians must provide an accurate personal NABP e-Profile ID and 4-digit (MMDD) date of birth when setting up a DSN CE account.
 
The NABP e-Profile ID is a number issued for individual pharmacists and technicians. An NABP number issued for a pharmacy should not be included on an individual’s profile.
 
To look up your personal NABP e-Profile ID or to request a free e-Profile ID, visit MyCPEMonitor.net.

To verify the accuracy of your DSN CE profile, login, select My account, Edit, Profile. If changes are needed, make the necessary adjustments and save. Contact customer service at DRSNCE@LF1925.com if you need assistance.
