  • Explain how Florida Statutes and Federal Laws conflict and/or complement one another.
  • Apply Federal Laws, Florida Statutes and Florida Administrative Rules in a pharmacy practice setting.
  • Document to the Florida Board of Pharmacy the knowledge of all laws and rules affecting pharmacy practice in Florida, whether they are Federal or Florida laws/rules, and the application of these rules and laws in their practice settings.

Other than these features, Flash is not required to use most areas of Canvas. The Java plug-in is required for screen sharing in Conferences.

Internet Connection: A broadband Internet connection is strongly recommended. Slower connections should still be able to access e-Learning, but will take longer to load.
