Click here for an overview of the Jurisprudence exam as an entry-to-practice requirement, the exam blueprint and a list of required study material.
Please Note: As of August 2013, a single Jurisprudence exam will be offered to all candidates based on an updated exam blueprint. The blueprint for the Jurisprudence exam was reviewed, updated and approved by Council in 2012. Its main sections have remained the same as the current blueprints with a redistribution of the number of questions within each section to reflect current pharmacy practice. For an overview of the new blueprint for the single Jurisprudence exam in comparison to the past separate Jurisprudence exam blueprints for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians, click here.
