About National Institute for Standards in Pharmacist Credentialing

The NISPC credentials in anticoagulation, asthma, diabetes and dyslipidemia are recognized as the national standard for pharmacists seeking certification in specific disease states. This credential documents to employers, peers, and the public that these pharmacists possess state of the art knowledge and skills to provide disease state management services to patients. Some states use the NISPC credential as a basis for compensation for a pharmacist's professional services.

"After the NISPC exam, I also attended the Lifescan PPDC course. These credentials together allowed me to become the pump trainer for Minimed. I am reimbursed by Minimed for training patients and am generally recognized as the local pharmacist diabetes expert. This has aided the overall image of our pharmacy, but has not translated into direct billing for patient care."
