Pharmacy Technology - Wayne Community College | Goldsboro, NC

Pharmacy Technology

The Pharmacy Technology program prepares you to assist the pharmacist in duties that a technician can legally perform and to function within the boundaries set by the pharmacist and the employment agency.

You will prepare prescription medications, mix intravenous solutions and other specialized medications, update patient profiles, maintain inventories, package medications in unit-dose or med-card form, and gather data used by pharmacists to monitor drug therapy.

Employment opportunities include retail, hospitals, nursing homes, research laboratories, wholesale drug companies, and pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities. Graduates from the program may be eligible to take the National Certification Examination to become a certified pharmacy technician.

Certified technicians may earn more than non-certified technicians.
