Lessons Available


As of June 17, 2015, the Board of Pharmacy Specialties has awarded the contract to Purdue.   BPS will no longer accept UNM CPE credits towards your BCNP recertification.  December 31, 2015 was the last date of acceptance.  While ACPE credit will be available the hours will NOT be accepted by BPS towards your recertification.  You can view the statement release by BPS 6/19/205 here.

Due to the new contract being awarded to another university for BCNP re-certification hours, all production of new Lessons has been halted and discontinued until further notice.

Below is an overview of the available Radiopharmacy CE courses currently online. The Contact Hours for each Lesson are in (Parenthesis).  You will have 2 attempts to pass each lesson.  If needed we can clear your current attempts and reset for an additional 2 attempts (email HSC-Radiopharmacyce@salud.unm.edu to request a reset).  If after the 4th attempt you do not pass the test, the lesson will need to be repurchased at full price.
