Many traditional jobs today have virtual counterparts! The position of pharmacist or pharmacy tech is no different than the rest. The skills used in the traditional world can also be used in the virtual world. Most any medical personnel can find employment in the virtual world because their experiences will always be needed.
So what would a remote pharmacist do? From what I have discovered most of their work will involve remote order entry. There are several institutions online in the medical field that require medical personnel, so pharmacy techs would handle any clinical work that required completion.
How much training do pharmacy techs require?
- Complete post secondary program (optional). The American society of Helath-System Pharmacists. (ASHP).
- Complete on-the-job training.
- Become certified
- Become specialized
- Maintain certification.
How much do pharmacists earn? This is what Google had to say: This may come as a surprise to some, but Pharmacist income is higher than what is expected. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the average Pharmacist salary is $106,410 annually. The highest-paid Pharmacists earn more than $131,440 per year, and even the lowest-paid Pharmacists are paid $77,390.
I had no idea pharmacists made so much money! Lol That is a very good wage for minimal schooling! I am still stumped as to why most employers fail to see the importance of on-the-job-training!! Would you want a surgeon performing surgery on you and he-she had never performed one before? Would you want a Lawyer in his-her first day of practice to decide your fate, who’d never debated in court? I wouldn’t!
I notice that with most virtual positions employers immediately speak about training: not every person has experience working in the virtual world, so training is necessary. Most positions offer some sort of training in each field, which helps new entrants have the flexibility to work from home.
Concluding Thoughts: With a bit of training and hands-on experience one could be on the way to a lucrative career as a pharmacy tech. The prospective pay is certainly worth the schooling, and pharmacists will always be needed: even they do things the doctors can’t! Much success on your journey!
