Pharmacy Law Manual

Every pharmacy must provide access to all reference materials appropriate for the accurate, efficient, and safe practice of pharmacy or any specialty practice of pharmacy in the facility.  These references must also be up-to-date and available at all times.  You can find these references by searching online, but why do that when you can order the NPA Pharmacy Law Manual? This manual contains the Nebraska statutes and regulations which pertain to the practice of pharmacy. It is organized by topic and indexed to assist you with your law questions. For ease of use, each section contains statutory information followed by the supporting regulations on topics such as pseudoephedrine, fees, technicians, controlled substances, and more.

Nebraska MEDS Medication Disposal Program
In response to recent concerns about traces of pharmaceutical and personal care products found in drinking water across the United States, the Nebraska Pharmacists Association (NPA) has partnered with the Groundwater Foundation, the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality, the Nebraska Board of Pharmacy, and the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department to create the Nebraska MEDS (Medication Education on Disposal Strategies) program. The focus of Nebraska MEDS program is to educate patients about disposal of prescription and over-the-counter medications. If flushed down the drain, unneeded or expired medications can contaminate our water.
