career propectus as a Pharmacy technician

Postby crayon » Tue, 19 Apr 2005 12:21 pm

Hi.

1) I would like to know what's the monthly average salary for a Pharmacy technician?

2) How's the job scope like, and how long are the working hours?

3) Am I able to do a degree in pharmacy with just a cert in pharmacy technician?

Thanks a lot for your response! :D

Depends on your experience, do you possess any Dispensing Certificate? Average market rate would range from $1,400-$1,800.

Job scope - Preparation of medication, stock charts, dispensing duties.

Degree in Pharmacy? - BPharm here offered locally is in a national university on a full time basis. I would suggest you do it on campus.

Good luck,

Amazed

Thanks for your reply.

I only hold a GCE O levels cert and a cert in pharmarcy technician(awarded by pharmaceutical society).

Am I still eligible for the degree course in NUS?

Based on my experience as a pharmacist, I would say that the local certificate in pharmacy dispensing is unlikely to help you gain entry here for the BPharm at the local university.

I suggest you apply to do your BPharm overseas - UK BSc Pharms are credible.

You can try applying though to see whether you can get in.

Good luck
