Pharmacy Graduates Are Best in the State

Cincinnati—University of Cincinnati College of Pharmacy graduates have out performed pharmacy graduates from all other Ohio schools on the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX). NAPLEX announced that 100 percent of the UC graduates taking the test achieved licensure as registered pharmacists on their first attempt during the summer testing window.

"We congratulate our students on their success and our faculty for doing an exceptional job educating our students," states Daniel Acosta, PhD, dean of the College of Pharmacy. The national passing rate was 90.3 percent, and the overall state passing rate was 92.6 percent. Ohio Northern University had a 91.2 percent passing rate, Ohio State University had a 92.0 percent passing rate, and the University of Toledo had a 90.9 percent passing rate. These results help UC continue its strong tradition of surpassing Ohio's and the nation's passing rate.
