Robeson Community College

Pharmacy Technician


Pharmacy technicians are used in a variety of ways to support the work of a supervising pharmacist. They will assist licensed pharmacists as they provide medication and other health care products to patients. They may assemble prescriptions in a pharmacist’s absence, but the pharmacist must check the medication before it is dispensed to a patient. Pharmacy technicians in North Carolina are considered a valuable part of a pharmacy’s team. The State Board of Pharmacy and the North Carolina Association of Pharmacists are looking for more ways to expand the pharmacy technician’s role. From measuring medications to maintaining patient records, your administrative and clinical knowledge will open doors in:

  • Hospitals

  • Outpatient clinics                                                                                
  • Pharmaceutical companies
