Preparation for a Pharmacy Technician Career
Pharmacy Technicians should have a solid foundation in the therapeutic use of prescription and nonprescription medications for treatment of diseases affecting the various physiologic systems of the human body. They should have comprehensive understanding of how to receive and screen prescriptions or medication orders. Ross offers a blend of courses, on-campus laboratory learning experiences, and an externship to ensure the most well-rounded development of knowledge and skills. Pharmacy Technician graduates are eligible to take both the Pharmacy Tech Certification Examination (PTCE) offered by the Pharmacy Tech Certification Board (PTCB) and the National Certification Examination for Pharmacy Technicians offered by National Healthcareer Association (NHA).
In addition to the core Pharmacy Technician training, Ross Medical Education Center goes a step above and provides instruction in networking techniques, tools to write a professional resume, and interview strategies.
Note: Under Section 133 of the HEA of 1965 as amended, institutions of higher education must provide textbook pricing information. This information is published and included in the campus catalog addendum that is distributed to all students prior to enrolling at Ross.
Pharmacy Technician Externships
Ross Medical Education Center requires students to complete a practical externship in order to graduate. The externship is crucial to the learning experience for every Ross student, giving them a chance to apply what they have been given instruction on in the classroom to a real world setting.
The externship also provides employers an opportunity to assess students’ skills prior to hiring entry-level allied health professionals.
In addition, unlike some other schools, Ross does not schedule or require any waiting period for externships! You may continue your training immediately after the classroom education. This is another example of our commitment to students’ success.
Ross does not guarantee employment.
