The Pharmacy Technology Bridge is an accelerated diploma or associate degree program offered as an option for pharmacy technicians who have at least one year of experience in the industry in the last three years. The program is for technicians who wish to pursue an academic program comprised of general education courses as well as pharmacy technician basics.
The associate degree also offers options to students who plan to use it 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.
Both the degree and diploma are 100% online, which ensures that any technician can enroll, no matter their shift schedule or location. Students who hold an active pharmacy technician certification may be exempt from some Pharmacy Technology courses.
