    In Canada, a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy is all that is required to practice as a Pharmacist. If I were to get that degree in Canada, would I be able to write the licensing exams in the States (e.g. in Florida)? Or will I have to get a Pharm.D?

    You typically if not always need to have another year of education, for a total of 5 years of study.

    I'm going to move this thread to the licensure subforum. There are a few similar threads there that you could browse for more information.
