When working in the field I will always make sure be aware of the medication I will be preparing and be sure to go over it more than just one time. I will also be mindful that my mistake could put another person’s life at risk. While I am in school I’ll always be sure to focus on my courses so I am able to obtain as much information about becoming a pharmacy technician and prevent any errors from happening.
I am a determined individual who is trustworthy and mature. I am a positive person and count that as another quality I hold, and believe is a necessity in any field of work, especially when interacting with others. These qualities shape who I am, and will help me succeed at my full potential in this course. Not everyone has these qualities and they are a key to success. The Pharmacy Technician program will assist me in getting the knowledge and experience I need to be applied for when I get a job right after, and will also allow me to continue learning what I am passionate about and to someday pursue as a
In this quote from the roman poet Horace he claims that “adversity can elicit talents and prosperous circumstances can remain the same”. Horace hits the target with this quote, because from personal experience when my grandfather passed away it brought out the toughest bond in our family and myself. Horace's assertions were also correct because when one is comfortable with themselves, or in a joyous lifestyle they tend to not change this, so everything is habitual throughout. Another way Horace's assertions were correct, because from my own observation of the world, and if adversity is present it develops a person's character in a negative or positive way.
Several factors will lead to increased demand for prescription medications.The population is aging, and older people typically use more prescription medicines than younger people. Higher rates of chronic diseases such as diabetes among all age groups also will lead to increased demand for prescription medications. Advances in pharmaceutical research will allow for more prescription medications to be used to fight diseases.The number of individuals who have health insurance is expected to continue to increase because of federal health insurance reform. As more people have access to insurance coverage, more pharmacy technicians will be needed to handle their prescriptions.Based on information, the need for a pharmacy technician is increasing. Pharmacists need technicians to aide them. A career as pharmacy technician can earn a person a decent living and a successful career based on schooling, pay, benefit, work environment and job outlook. (Bureau of Labor
In A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving, Owen tries to convince Mr. Morrison, the mailman, to play the Ghost of Christmas Future in the Christmas Pageant and is disinclined because he feels his part would not be scary enough. At that moment, Owen drops a bomb on him and tells him that “THERE’S NOTHING AS SCARY AS THE FUTURE” (Irving 195). He then proceeds to describe to him the recent events of what has happened, his premonition of his fate, and his faith that God has a role for him and that he must oblige. Even though Owen’s reason for telling Mr. Morrison his beliefs is to convince him to play the role, the quote is still impactful and visible in the lives of many high school students and especially my life. The impact of the future has
I have been a component of the pharmacy team since March of 2015. Needless to say, it was nothing that I had expected to be. You will often hear the phrase, “all you have to do is fill the prescription”. Well, that is not true, it’s more to it than that. In the majority of pharmacies, there are approximately three workstations. They’re drop off, production, and pick up. At drop off, he or she will type in the prescription and bill it through the patient insurance. The production team member will then pull the medication and fill it. The prescription is then passed off to the pharmacist for quality assurance. Working in a pharmacy you have to dress professional along with a white coat. Being a pharmacy technician you have to deal with the public.
I am currently a pharmacy technician in-training at Kroger Pharmacy, and plan to obtain my official technician license in December. I dispense medications, input patient 's information into the computer system, answer phone calls, maintain sanitation standards in the pharmacy, and help customers locate over the counter medications and supplies. Working at the pharmacy has taught me how to work efficiently in fast pace situations, how to prioritize what tasks neeed to be completed first, time management skills, and the names of
Currently, I am a member of the Dual Language Honors program at Miami Dade College. Through this wonderful program I have been involved in rigorous classes that challenged my understanding of the world. I also engaged in a bilingual and bicultural environment. Furthermore, I developed leadership skills and truly discover my passion for medicine. Now that I am transferring to complete my Bachelor education in Biology with a minor in Chemistry, I am highly interested in obtaining an education that will complement my knowledge and prepare me to succeed in my field of study. My goal is to transfer to an institution that offers research opportunities to undergraduates in biology and chemistry, in order to facilitate a medium to develop scientific
I would be remiss if I failed to mention Namosha’s outstanding personal integrity, as well as
At the time when this story happened, the healthcare system and the educational system was not well-rounded compared with those of today. We cannot blame on the physicians in the story, they could do better without the many limitations at that time. With the development of science and technology, the world is always changing with fast speed. We cannot predict what the pharmacy world would like after we graduation, so I believe in order to build a good shape as an excellent pharmacist, we should not only grasp knowledge we learn from daily course, but also catch up with the newest information and research in
I can see myself working in this setting. My mentor Michael E. Spiller, who graduated from the FAMU COPPS in 1981 is a retail pharmacist. He has made a great life for himself and is happily retired but I see myself being more diverse and going beyond retail.
Contrary to popular belief, pharmacists don’t just sit behind a counter in the back of the pharmacy counting pills all day. Pharmacists play an important role in today’s society as counselors and teachers, and anyone who has ever been to counseling or school knows communication is a key factor in these fields. Pharmacists must be fluent in all types of communication in order to be successful. A pharmacist’s job is to communicate to patients, healthcare practitioners, and the community vital information and advice (Wallman). Potential pharmacists go through communication training in pharmacy school where they learn how to be effective in each type of communication. The three most important forms of communication pharmacists use everyday are
I have always had somewhat of an interest in the medical field, but I never wanted to become a physician or pediatrician. A pharmacist is the perfect in between of being in the medical field but not being an actual doctor. Also, dealing with drugs and medicine has always seemed interesting to me for as long as I could remember. As I previously mentioned, pharmacists have job mobility, stability, and flexibility. Pharmacists are employed everywhere in the country, so it’s very likely that I get a job anywhere. Also, everybody gets sick, and people are going to continue to get sick, so my job will always be stable and secure. After talking with my aunt, who is a pharmacist, I found out that a pharmacist only has to complete a certain amount of hours a week. So I could work 3 days and finish all my hours and have rest of the week off, or I could spread my hours throughout the week. Those aren’t the only reasons I want to go into this profession, I really want to help people get well and feel better. A physician isn’t the only role that helps patients feel better. A pharmacist also has a key role. Pharmacists are healthcare providers that have to communicate with there patients to make sure they can take the medication properly according to their lifestyle, diet, and transportation. The best reason of all is that I get to work directly with patients. Pharmacists are able to see patients anytime during the week, morning, evening, and
I have come too far to achieve my goal. Being a pharmacy graduate from another country and not able to practice here in the USA, I went through the whole process of pharmacy school and stand on my grounds for the completion. I want to contribute towards my community and family. I want to hold onto my good foundation in moral values and beliefs of principles. I differentiate myself from other students in past by receiving the quality of education and college experience throughout my schooling. In short, I see myself not only being the future pharmacist, I am more to be a profession in a society as multifunctional, leaders, social technician, and reformers. I have an ability for foreign languages. As a matter of fact, I know English, Hindi, Gujarati, Swahili, Urdu, and Punjabi. My future learning goal is Spanish. My studies at the University of Wyoming will contribute a lot in getting a licensure to work in any state of pharmacy and pursuing my goals in the future to work for a chain pharmacy and maybe look into doing an anticoagulation clinic. I strongly believe that the school of pharmacy has provided me to be fine interdisciplinary human, professional and have the knowledge to seek a level excellence in the field of pharmacy. I can describe what I plan to do between now and graduation to distinguish myself is to work hard towards my rotation and gain as much experience as possible. I
The development of clinical pharmacy began at the University of Michigan in the early 1960s. Instead of drug-oriented pharmacy, patient-oriented concept was initiated within short period of time. In addition, discipline of clinical pharmacy has experienced a phenomenal growth. Dissatisfaction of pharmacist towards old practice contributes to quick grow of clinical pharmacy. However, clinical pharmacy did not grow solely and always associate with dug information. The idea of pharmacist’s involvement in the
