Help - Contact Hours

The following directions are from The NPA home page once you are signed in.

As an NPA member you may access your Conference Statement of Credits (contact hours) here on the website.

Contact hours/Pharmacology hours will be awarded within 30 days after the completion of the event. You will either need to sign in at the beginning of the event or sign an attestation statement indicating that you have attended the sessions you registered for.

The statements of credits will serve as your certificate.

Please Note: Contact hours/Pharmacology hours will NOT be awarded unless we have your signature on the sign in form or have received your signed attestation statement.

Professional Development Journal Entries Screen

The Professional Development screen is divided into two tabs - Journal Entries and Certifications/Programs.

The Journal Entries page provides a summary of all contact hours which you've earned. The NPA will enter your hours within 30 days after you've attended a qualifying NPA event. The NPA entries are signified by the lock icon.

Members may also post their own entries so as to consolidate all of your contact hours in one place. To create your own entry click on the Add Entry icon and fill out the popup form. You can also upload a file, such as a certificate of attendance with each entry.

If you have many entries you can use the Search Filters at the top of the page to find specific entries. You may also Export, Print or E-mail your transcripts.

If you have taken a course that includes pharmacology credits, you will see two statements of credit for the same course. One will say National Certification and one will say Pharmacology Credits.
