The Roosevelt University College of Pharmacy Class of 2018 has achieved the highest first-time NAPLEX (North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination) passing rate among all five of the colleges of pharmacy in Chicago with over 89% passing on the first attempt!  This is on par with the national passing rate of 89.5%. 

The NAPLEX exam, which is administered by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy,  measures a candidate’s knowledge of the practice of pharmacy. It is just one component of the licensure process and is used by the boards of pharmacy as part of their assessment of a candidate’s competence to practice as a pharmacist.

We thank the faculty and staff of RUCOP for their dedication to our students and commitment to excellence, for this important milestone!
