Being convicted or found guilty, regardless of adjudication, in a court of this state or other jurisdiction, of a crime which directly relates to the ability to practice pharmacy or to the practice of pharmacy may constitute grounds for denial of a license or disciplinary action. This includes misdemeanors, felonies, driving while intoxicated (DWI), and driving under the influence (DUI). Crimes must be reported even if they are a suspended imposition of sentence. A plea of nolo contendere constitutes a conviction. If the arrest is not reported, it becomes an actionable administrative complaint, and the college reserves the right to report such information to the board and may result in the student’s license being revoked by the board. In addition to the reporting requirements to the Florida Board of Pharmacy, students must adhere to the criminal offense reporting requirements outlined in Section B.15 of the NSU Student Handbook.
