What are the pharmacist continuing education requirements?

The requirements for pharmacist continuing education vary widely by state. Some states have yearly CE requirements, and others have requirements that must be completed every 2 years. Most require up to 30 hours of CE credits that often include hours studying drug and pharmaceutical law. Still other requirements might include approved computer courses, while others will allow limited at-home or distance-education courses in approved pharmaceutical studies.
