Up to my knowlege to take TX naplex it should be withen 3 month period from getting your certificate.
You can directly to call lisa who is in charge with these stuff. Her email is on the TX website, hope this help.
I am FPGEC certified and currently working as a pharmacy intern in OHIO.
I still have mot of hours to complete. But I am planning to move to Texas in a couple of months.
Can I take NAPLEX exam for Texas without completing internship in Texas?
If yes, then I want to clear my NAPLEX before my move and complete my internship there.
Based on my knowledge, there are important things you should know.
First, you can always take the NAPLEX/MPJE in Texas as long as you have your FPGEC. You have two forms to apply. One through the Texas State Board of pharmacy (TSBP) ($52) fees and the second though the NABP ($650). You should take into consideration that, it will take up to six weeks to get you admission tickets for NAPLEX/MPJE.
Second, if three months already passed since you got your FPGEC, you can not work in TX as an Intern till you clear both the NAPLEX?MPJE.
Third, if you still have three months period, you can apply to get the extended pharmacist intern license, however, if you did not clear both exams within the three months period. Then, your license will be revoked. The internship hours that you gained during these months will be valid for two years and then, they will expire.
Fourth, if you want to transfer hours earned in other states, most likely, the Texas State Board of Pharmacy will not endorse them (you got to check with Lisa from the TSBP regarding this issue.
My personal advice to you, if you can finish off your hours in Ohio, go ahead especially if you earned more than 750 hr. It is just tiring to start all over again. I hope this can help make up your mind to make a decision.
