Did you know? 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 pertaining 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 supporting regulations on topics such as pseudoephedrine, fees, technicians, controlled substances, and more.
