How to gain your licence to practise as a pharmacist in the US


Hi, I am an Indian Pharmacist.In 2012 I came to know about this FPGEE. I started the application process with ECE.After 2 grueling years of sending letters to and fro to my Pharmacy board and ECE.I finally get my ECE report in 2015.Now the fees became $1200 for FPGEE. When I started the process it was $600. The report said that I have an equivalent to Master s in pharmacy in USA. Finally I submit my application for FPGEE to write this Oct. One week before the exam they declined my application saying -I lack experience in patient care in a clinical pharmacy practice setting.Since the fees was $1200 ,they said they refund only $750. The application process is frustrationg time consuming sending letters from this continent to the other. They should give ECE the power to decide whether a student can proceed for the exam or not. I could have gone and done some courses. 4 years! I could have done something else. I was studying for this exam. One week before they decline my application. If NABP was evaluating it then why send all reports & certificates to ECE.??Because the $450 was evaluating fee of NABP.
