Temecula, Calif. – Nufactor, Inc., a subsidiary of FFF Enterprises, Inc. is pleased to announce that 18 Nufactor pharmacists eligible to take the Immune Globulin National Society's (IgNS) Ig Certified Pharmacist (IgCP®) have passed the exam.

Pharmacists in North Carolina were credentialed on December 18 and pharmacists located at their California facility were credentialed earlier this year.
IgCP® credentialing is the only nationally recognized certification for Ig pharmacists. Nufactor's decision to work toward achieving this accreditation for registered and licensed pharmacists is a demonstration of their ongoing commitment to Ig excellence.
"I'm extremely proud of our North Carolina pharmacy for their achievement. Our California team was the first pharmacy to achieve IgCP® credentialing earlier this year and having our North Carolina team receive IgCP® credentials strengthens our pharmacy practices within our organization. By aligning with nationally recognized standards as set forth by the Immunoglobulin National Society (IgNS), Nufactor continues to provide patients with highly skilled pharmacy support and quality care every time," said Leslie Vaughan, RPh, IgCP®, chief operations officer.
IgNS is committed to the IgCP® credentialing process, which provides assessment, validation and documentation of the knowledge, skills and overall clinical competence of pharmacists managing and dispensing Ig therapy. The IgCP® credentialing is the only nationally-recognized certification for Ig pharmacists. It meets nationally-recognized standards that are reliable and legally defensible measurements of Ig pharmacists' knowledge and skills. IgCP® credentialing validates that pharmacists have met stringent requirements for knowledge and experience and are qualified to provide competent Ig care.
"Ig therapy is one of the most complex clinical fields, requiring pharmacists to possess specialized expertise to ensure safe clinical practices and best patient outcomes. Earning the prestigious IgCP® credential demonstrates the highest dedication to the practice of Ig therapy, and merits recognition of the pharmacist's knowledge and clinical competence," said Luba Sobolevsky, PharmD, IgCP®, executive director of IgNS.
