3 Reasons WTI’s Pharmacy Technician Program is For You
Are you still trying to figure out exactly what it is you’d like to do with your life? Or, are you already training at WTI and wondering if you made the right decision? Making choices about your future is no simple task, but that’s exactly why we’re here – to guide you along the way! If there are still some question marks, here are a few good reasons why you should consider beginning (or continuing) the Pharmacy Technician program at WTI!
The pharmacy technician field is growing:
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. pharmacy technician jobs are expected to increase by 32 percent from 2010 to 2020 (from 334,400 jobs in 2010 to a projected 442,600 in 2020), which is much faster than most occupations. Technological advances in the pharmaceutical field are emerging so rapidly that new prescription medications are developed each year and distributed to patients to help fight diseases. As the baby boomer generation continues to grow older, the need for qualified pharmaceutical technicians will also increase.
A future pharmacy technician career may fit your schedule:
No matter what kind of work schedule your lifestyle requires, finding the right shift as a pharmacy technician may be easier than you think. Many pharmacies around the country are open 24 hours a day, which can accommodate even the busiest of schedules. Most pharmaceutical technicians work full-time hours, but part-time jobs are also available for those who have completed their training but aren’t able to dedicate as much time to work.
Pharmacy technicians can work in a variety of settings:
As a pharmacy technician, you’ll have the opportunity to practice your craft in many different environments. Not only are jobs available in retail pharmacies, but there’s also potential to work in hospitals, surgery and oncology units, and private practices. No matter where you work, you’ll be exposed to the latest pharmaceutical technology, which allows technicians to take on tasks previously only completed by a pharmacist.
