Pharmacy Technology

Pharmacy Technicians work under the direct supervision of a pharmacist and generally are responsible for 3 functions:

  • Assisting the pharmacist in serving patients
  • Maintaining medication and inventory control systems
  • Participating in the administration of pharmacy practice

In hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted-living facilities, technicians have added responsibilities, including preparing sterile solutions and delivering medications to nurses or physicians. Technicians may also record the information about the prescribed medication onto the patient’s profile.

Certified technicians may earn more than non-certified technicians.
