About the Board of Pharmacy

Created in 1893, The Tennessee Board of Pharmacy licenses and registers Pharmacists, Pharmacies, Pharmacy Technicians, Manufacturers, Wholesale/Distributors, Outsourcing Facilities, Oxygen Suppliers, Researchers and Medical Service Representatives.

The Board also enacts rules addressing professional conduct and standards of practice. Our purpose is to ensure that the pharmacists of Tennessee are providing competent pharmaceutical care in accordance with state and federal laws. To that end, we determine the competency of graduates of recognized schools or colleges of pharmacy applying for licensure, ensure compliance with the Pharmacy Law, and take disciplinary action and conduct hearings when appropriate.

Our mission is to serve Tennesseans by providing a fair, flexible, and positive regulatory environment for pharmacy related industries. In support of this mission, the Tennessee Board of Pharmacy is committed to:

Maintaining public confidence in the integrity of the Pharmacy industry and professions;
Establishing policies that protect the public while balancing the interest of the consumers, industries, and professionals;
Providing services and information to assist the public in responding to the regulated industry or profession; and,
Enhancing the quality of life, health and safety for the citizens of Tennessee.
