We Prepare Pharmacists to Lead in 21st Century Health Care

Today, pharmacists go far beyond the counter, applying their expertise and serving patients in new ways. As an innovator in education for the health professions, UNE will empower you to be a medication expert, wellness consultant, and primary caregiver — ready to lead in the new world of pharmacy. 

We're proud to say that the licensure pass rate of our College of Pharmacy graduates in the second trimester of 2018 was 92.3% — above the national average.
