Expect More Specialized Positions for Hospital Pharmacy Techs
Advancements in pharmacy practice will lead to more career options for techs.
Prepare for changing requirements. We know that many hospitals require techs to be certified by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB)...even if it's not a state board requirement.
But starting in 2020, techs will have to complete an ASHP/ACPE-accredited training program BEFORE taking PTCB's certification exam.
