What is the APhA New Practitioner Network?

The mission of the APhA New Practitioner Network is to support the transition from student to pharmacist by helping new graduates discover opportunities in pharmacy, develop themselves and their professional network, and empower them with the knowledge and skills necessary to define the future of their profession.

The APhA New Practitioner Network provides programs, products, and services to assist you in making this transition and with your career development. The Network also provides reduced APhA dues, which enable you to pay discounted APhA dues for the first 3 years after you graduate.

Managing people with confidence

Graduating with your PharmD degree is exciting, but the real thrill happens when you add the letters “RPh” to your name. I will never forget my first day as the pharmacist.

Preparing for your first rotation student

New Practitioners often have vivid memories of their rotation experiences from their years as a student pharmacist and perhaps as a resident.

Staying up-to-date as a new practitioner

Staying up-to-date in the pharmacy profession is something that is not often taught in school, but it is something that all New Practitioners have to figure out how to do.

Ten ‘wish-I-knews’ before buying a house

My wife and I call “looking for fun” the rookie mistake we made in the hunt for our first house. We spent many Sunday afternoons popping in and out of open houses.

Relationships and residencies

Residency is undoubtedly a challenging time for pharmacy residents, but it can also be taxing on their significant others.
