Pharm Tech At Bismarck State College

By Sarah Hoffbeckheal

Is your student interested in becoming a Pharmacy Technician?

Beginning this Fall 2016, NDSCS will offer the Pharmacy Technician program in collaboration with Bismarck State College (BSC)!

Students will enroll through NDSCS, but may attend classes in Bismarck. Courses will be taught by NDSCS faculty and be delivered in real time via IVN/Telepresence technology to students onsite at BSC. Upon completion of the program, students will earn their certificate or A.A.S. degree from NDSCS.

The Pharmacy Technician program prepares students for careers performing and managing the technical functions in pharmacies and pharmacy-related industries. Pharmacy Technician graduates can register with the North Dakota Board of Pharmacy and are eligible for national certification. Pharmacy technicians are found in community, hospital and home health care pharmacies, as well as research institutions and manufacturers.
