For a third-consecutive year, the College of Pharmacy graduating class had a 100 percent pass rate on the national pharmacy licensing examination.

The national pass rate for all colleges of pharmacy was 96.57 percent. UNMC students had an average score of 112.43. The national average score was 105.03.

"The entire College of Pharmacy family shares in this achievement," said Courtney Fletcher, Pharm.D., dean of the College of Pharmacy. "It reflects the commitment and expertise of the College of Pharmacy faculty. ... And, it is a result of the outstanding students who come to study pharmacy at UNMC."
