On my pharmcas application I have Professional Licenses and Certifications, Honors and Scholarships, and Publications all blank. Is that bad? :(

I was in the same boat! Don't worry too much about it!
As long as you have a solid extracurricular/volunteer section, I wouldn't be worried.

I would not think that it is bad, but the more you have to offer, the better you would look, I imagine. In my case, my honors, licenses and certifications balanced out some of the other parts of my application (i.e. PCAT score).

Your application is always taken as a whole. If you are missing something, you better bring something else, i.e. higher gpa, pcat, extracurriculars, work experience, etc.

Would an expired CPR certification I had 5 years ago work?

And what about Pharmacy tech certification?

And are grants considered scholarships?

-Expired CPR certification won't count
-Yes, include your pharm tech gertification
-Grants aren't counted as scholarships (read somewhere on PharmCAS)

Why doesn't CPR certification count? Also had a certified healthcare provider training. On PharmCAS it says to put the expiration date so why wouldn't it count?

You are looking way too much into this. Pharmacy school applications is rather open-admissions at this point, which was not the case 10 years ago.
