This course is designed to prepare students to assist and support licensed pharmacists in providing health care and medications to patients. Pharmacy technicians can expect to perform many of the same duties as a pharmacist, however their work must be approved by a pharmacist before medication can be dispensed.
Pharmacy Technicians can expect to:
- Enter prescription orders
- Help maintain inventories
- Label and package prescriptions
- Review medication history for patients
- Assist with immunizations
- Compound sterile preparations
