If someone passed NAPLEX in 2009 in Illinois, can a person transfer or reciprocate pharmacist license in California.

I read from the forum that only way is to score transfer or take naplex again. Is that true.??

You can only do score transfer or retake the NAPLEX if you've been out of school less than a year. If you've been out of school more than a year and you want to get licensed in another state, you have to reciprocate off your Illinois license. The process varies a little bit from state to state - for example, some require fingerprinting but some don't - so your best bet is to look at the state board of pharmacy's website.

Maybe I didn't make myself clear. Yes, they do allow you to reciprocate. No, you do not need to retake the NAPLEX. Score transfer is the process used by new graduates who are trying to get licensed in more than one state immediately after graduation. Since you took the NAPLEX several years ago, you are not a new graduate. Pharmacists who have been licensed > 1 year in one state get licensed in other states by reciprocity, so that is the process you'll use.

As I said earlier, the process of becoming licensed by reciprocity varies somewhat from state to state, so to find what to do, you must to go to the California Board of Pharmacy's website. The post above this one has a link.
