nichole722 in Covington, Ohio said: I'm 26 years old. I've worked at an institutional pharmacy for 8 years now doing mainly the computer/ data entry work. 3 years ago I went and took the Pharm Tech test to become certified, as it is now required by law in Ohio to be certified. I want to pursue being licensed as a Pharmacist. Where do I start? What is the best plan of attack?
If you really want to become a pharmacist, pursue it. Take all the prerequisites and apply to Pharmacy School. See what grades you need and PCAT score for the school of your choice and try to score above the minimum requirements. If possible, try to pursue an alternative career path at the same time. Just in case you don't find employment as a pharmacist. See if your company will help you pay for your pharmacy education and offer you a job when complete. Hope this helps.
