Pharmacy Choice, Inc., a Denver-based provider of web-based services for the pharmacy and pharmaceutical industries, has announced the availability of several new online review courses for the U.S. pharmacist licensure exams. Pharmacy graduates and pharmacists preparing for the NAPLEX, MPJE and FPGEE exams can now study for their exams online at RxSchool (www.RxSchool.com) .
The courses are presented in cooperation with Midwestern Univeristy Chicago College of Pharmacy. "RxSchool is an enhanced means to providing the best educational resources to future pharmacists," said Nancy Fjortoft, Associate Dean and Associate Professor of Midwestern. Fjortoft added: "Our instructors will constantly interact with their students through live chat, discussion groups and personal e-mail. As an online course we can constantly update and improve the content to keep pace with new scientific information."
"By establishing the RxSchool review courses as an online preparation alternative, we allow students to maintain their daily schedules and not have to worry about travel expenses or missing work while they prepare for the licensure exams," said Steve Croke, president of Pharmacy Choice. "The virtual classroom provides for a personal touch that is missing from other home study options."
RxSchool also offers customizable courses to corporate clients who want to provide their employees with company-specific training and review options. This is especially attractive for those companies who are looking beyond U.S. borders to fill open positions. One of the country's largest retailers has already participated in this program by enrolling about 30 students in RxSchool On-line Pharmacy Exam Review Course for foreign-educated pharmacists. Foreign pharmacists must pass the FPGEE, the NAPLEX, and the MPJE in order to get licensed to work in the United States and until now, there was no way to effectively prepare for the exam without the expense of attending a review course in the United States. "This suite of pharmacy review products is exactly what the industry needs. It efficiently educates pharmacists worldwide by transcending time zones and allowing students to study at their own pace," said Michele Belsey, Director of College & Professional Recruitment for Rite Aid Corporation.
