Graduates of the program are prepared to succeed in ways that will distinguish them throughout their careers. Ours is a proven legacy of success, evidenced by the fact that our graduates achieve pass rates on the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX) at rates consistently higher than state and national averages. And PBA’s location in West Palm Beach, Florida, will place you close to career opportunities at 200 healthcare providers and more than 150 biotechnology, medical device and pharmaceutical companies.


PBA’s Doctor of Pharmacy program prepares graduates to sit for the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX), a nationwide examination for the licensing of pharmacists in the United States. Passing this exam is required for pharmacist licensure in the United States.  Additionally, PBA’s Doctor of Pharmacy program prepares graduates to sit for the Florida Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination (MPJE), a statewide examination that is required for the licensing of pharmacists in the state of Florida. Licensure and certification varies from state to state, and graduates should be prepared to abide by additional requirements when seeking licensure or certification in a state other than Florida.
