Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination (MPJE)

The MPJE is a two-hour, computer-adaptive examination that consists of 90 multiple-choice test questions. The MPJE tests a candidate’s mastery of pharmacy law as outlined in the MPJE Competency Statements/Blueprint. Each board of pharmacy approves questions applicable in that state or jurisdiction. The NAPLEX®/MPJE® Registration Bulletin, linked to in the preceding section, will help you prepare. As of 2014, 48 jurisdictions utilize the MPJE as part of their licensure requirements. Arkansas, California, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands do not participate. The state of Virginia transitioned from offering a state exam (FSDLE) to the MPJE on July 1st, 2016. Contact the board of pharmacy for law examination requirements in those jurisdictions.
