Started in 1982 as Pharmacists Aiding Pharmacists (PAP) and became PRN/Minnesota in 1995, this organization 
has no Board of Directors. It is freestanding and separate from all Minnesota State pharmacy professional 
organizations. It uses substance misuse professionals who are credentialed to supply specific services. 
This organization became an advocate, resource, and support group program in July 1995. In 1995 a 
monitoring program (HPSP) for all health professions licensing boards came into existence through enabling 
legislation. The official monitoring of self-referred pharmacists and Board referred pharmacists paid by the 
Boards made our monitoring redundant. PRN/Minnesota supplies weekly (Wednesday) mutual support meetings
and advocacy services by a contract relationship with each pharmacist.

What about funding? The organization charges client fees: $10/month It does not receive funding through license 
renewal fees.

Active clients include: Pharmacists & Student Pharmacist
