    Hello everyone!I have a dilemma. I wish to get licenses in both Mississippi and Florida. However, I'm a bit afraid about my hours due to the fact that my former preceptors moved out of state and/or retired so I'm having trouble getting into contact with them. I know about the score transfer process but I'm a bit confused about reciprocity. Any one have any advice? Thank you in advance!

    You typically can't reciprocate until you've worked for a while. Just send your scores to both states and obtain a license by testing.

    Yeah, an original license is preferable to a reciprocal one

    Thanks for the responses! What do you believe is best to do for the situation regarding those hours needed?

    Well, if you can't prove your hours, then you might not have any choice, but reciprocity. But talk tot he pharmacy you worked at, surely someone knows where your previous preceptors worked or how to get in touch with them.
