Mission Statement

Updated 4/4/2019

The Kentucky Board of Pharmacy serves the Commonwealth to promote, preserve, and protect the public health, safety, and welfare through effective regulation of the practice of Pharmacy. The Board of Pharmacy accomplishes this mission through examination, testing and credentialing of prospective pharmacists, regulation and discipline of all licensed pharmacists, and through appropriate communication of information and laws pertaining to the practice of Pharmacy in Kentucky.

The Kentucky Board of Pharmacy is self-supporting and receives no general fund tax appropriation. It is funded through fees assessed for the licensing and registration of its professionals and the permitting of pharmacies and wholesaler/manufacturing facilities.
