About This Calculator

The North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX) is a standardized national exam required for all practicing pharmacists in the United States. The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) website provides limited historical data (typically only the past three years) and does not provide this data in a format conducive to basic descriptive statistical analysis.

The purpose of this calculator is to provide historical data (the past 10 years) and basic statistical analysis in a format that is sortable and searchable. All data represents first-time attempts among students who took the NAPLEX exam within the same year of graduation.

Historical Name Changes

Over time, a small number of pharmacy schools have merged or changed names. This data set has accounted for the following changes:

  • The Medical School of South Carolina and the University of South Carolina merged into a single institution, South Carolina College. All historical data for the two schools has been combined into South Carolina College.
  • The University of Southern Nevada was renamed to Roseman University of Health Sciences. All historical data uses the name Roseman University to maintain a consistent history.
