Student Membership and Resources

Advocacy. Connections. Solutions. Development. As a student pharmacist, you recognize the value of community. You aren't just earning a degree. You're building trust, cultivating relationships, and learning how to improve the lives of people you care about with each lecture you attend and shift you pull at the pharmacy.

At NCPA, we're about building a community. As America's community pharmacy association, we bring student pharmacists together to shape good ideas into best practices and to turn challenges into innovations.

We recently launched NCPA Student Pharmacists — the new Facebook page and Instagram account made just for you. Look for @ncpastudents on both platforms and like/follow for great content including member highlights and upcoming events. Does your chapter have a Facebook or Instagram page? Be sure to have them like/follow us as well.


When you graduate, you will take the Oath of a Pharmacist. In that oath, you promise to embrace and advocate changes that improve patient care. At NCPA, we help you fulfill that promise long before graduation.

At NCPA, we like to provide solutions. After all, what's the point if we don't help solve some problems for you? We know you have pain points that are unique to you as a student pharmacist, so we have solutions that are specific to where you are in life.

Avoid more student loan debt.



We understand what student pharmacists need because we've been there. We're here to help you navigate and succeed.

You learn a lot in pharmacy school, but it doesn't cover everything you need to know to be a successful pharmacist. Leadership skills, business savvy, mentorship, and nontraditional practice experience are areas where NCPA works to fill in the gaps for you.

Grow as a leader.
