About The Program
In coordination with the mission of the North Carolina Community College System and the purpose of Wake Technical Community College, the purpose of the Pharmacy Technology Program is to prepare graduates to become pharmacy technicians.
These allied health professionals assist and support licensed pharmacists in providing prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, medical equipment and supplies, pharmaceutical care services, and other health care products and services for patients.
The Pharmacy Technology curriculum prepares individuals to assist the pharmacist in duties that a technician can legally perform and to function within the boundaries prescribed by the pharmacist and the employment facility.
The associate degree program is offered as an option for students who wish to pursue an academic program comprised of general education courses as well as pharmacy technician basics. The associate's degree also offers options to students who plan to use the degree as the foundation for further education. The program strives to balance technical training and classroom instruction in order to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to meet the needs and goals established by the pharmacy profession.
Pharmacy Technology Program classes are held at the Perry Health Sciences Campus in Raleigh.
