Drug Diversion Continuing Education Statement: - Current Topics

Drug Diversion Continuing Education Statement:


The 2023 Legislature passed a law that will be implemented this renewal cycle (2024) for pharmacists regarding the Drug Diversion Continuing Education (CE) requirement.  This law update only requires pharmacists to complete the Drug Diversion CE one time within one year after initial licensure.  
  • Therefore, if you have reported Drug Diversion CE to the WV BOP during a licensure renew before 2024 you DO NOT need to report the Drug Diversion CE requirement in 2024. 
  • Licensees who are renewing for the first time and have never reported the 2-hour board-approved Drug Diversion CE requirement to the WVBOP are required to report it this year in 2024 at license renewal. 
Questions should be sent to Krista Capehart, PharmD, Director of Professional and Regulatory Affairs at krista.d.capehart@wv.gov.
