About being a pharmacy tech
I would like to be a pharmacy technician, but now that I'm reading the book I bought (Concise Review for the PTCB Exam) I realize I don't really know what a pharmacy tech does? I thought I'd need to know pharmacy laws, how to read prescriptions, and do some conversions, but there's A LOT of info in this book. I'm feeling really overwhelmed!
Can someone explain what a pharmacy tech does? Why, do I need to memorize 200 drug names, brand names and classifications? Why do I need to learn which drugs do what if I'm not the doctor prescribing it? I'm just putting it in a bottle and giving it to customers?
I hope someone will help me understand so I can decide if this is really what I want to do! Thanks so much!
