A new Nebraska law, approved in 2016, specifies that a pharmacy technician who is employed by a Nebraska health care facility (hospital, pharmacy, long-term care, etc.) must be registered with the Pharmacy Technician Registry
through the state of Nebraska in order to work as a pharmacy technician in that facility. Technicians who were already registered as of January 1, 2016 are required to become certified
by January 1, 2017. Any pharmacy technician registered after January 1, 2016 is allowed 1 year from the date of registration to become certified. The certification must be a state or national certification approved by the Board of Pharmacy
. Once certified, pharmacy technicians are required to maintain their certification during the time they are registered as technicians.
