|Description:||July 1, 2014 marked a dramatic change in the practice of pharmacy in New Brunswick. As pharmacists expand their scope, spending increasing amounts of time in direct patient care, the opportunity for pharmacy technicians to take more responsibility in patient care has created a need for regulation of pharmacy technicians. Our program, nationally accredited by the Canadian Council of Accreditation for Pharmacy Programs (CCAPP), combines an exciting blend of theory, lab classes and applied workplace experiences in hospital and community pharmacies. You will learn the technical facets of pharmacy practices that will ensure a high standard of patient care and the safe distribution of drug products in varied practice settings.
"[Registered] pharmacy technicians use their knowledge and skills to undertake their expanded scope of practice which allows activities such as transcribing verbal orders, transferring prescriptions and checking the technical aspects of a prescription." (NAPRA Professional Competencies for Canadian Pharmacy Technicians at Entry to Practice) You will work collaboratively with the pharmacist and other health care professionals with the common goal of achieving optimal drug therapy outcomes.
The ever-changing world that is the often fast-paced pharmacy profession is an exciting road to travel. Start your journey in the Pharmacy Technician Program at the New Brunswick Community College today.
