The Pharmacy Technology program prepares individuals to assist the pharmacist in duties that a technician can legally perform and to function within the boundaries prescribed by the pharmacist and the employment agency.
Graduates will prepare prescription medications, mix intravenous solutions, and other specialized medications, update patient profiles, maintain inventories, package medication in unit-dose or med-card form, and gather data used by pharmacists to monitor drug therapy.
Graduates may be employed in retail, hospitals, nursing homes, research laboratories, wholesale drug companies, and pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities. Graduates from the program may be eligible to take the National pharmacy technician.
