To Renew or Not to Renew, that is the question.
I am a registered pharmacist and in Texas, RPh licenses are renewed every other year for $325. In addition to license renewal, there is a Continuing Education requirement of 30 hours CE. I retired May 1 of this year and considering my neuromuscular condition, it is exceedingly unlikely that I will ever work again. I can't walk and I cannot manipulate syringes. I could do order entry verification and I could check technicians work. My previous employer has asked if I would be interested in doing PRN work but I have put them off. I don't particularly want to work again even part time; I don't financially need to work. But once your license lapses, that's it buddy. To be reinstated I would have to take the national boards again and frankly my dear, my brain isn't what it used to be. I think to be on the safe side, I'll renew because you just never know what's coming. What do you think??
