College Now Offers Pharmacy Technician Degree at Cambridge Campus

January 17, 2014

To meet the credentialing that industry experts believe will be required in the near future, Anoka-Ramsey Community College now offers an associate in science degree (AS) in Pharmacy Technician.

The required general education courses for the new degree program can be taken at either college campus, Cambridge or Coon Rapids. The program-specific courses are held at the Cambridge Campus to meet the needs of the rural area pharmacies, where training required for new Minnesota Board of Pharmacists regulations may be scarce.

“This is an exciting opportunity for both our students and business partners in the Cambridge area,” said Associate Dean of Educational Services Natasha Baer. “The addition of this program provides more flexible training options that lead to industry employment in a short amount of time.”

As part of a Health Professions Pathways (H2P) grant initiative, the AAS degree was created to allow students to obtain incremental credentials to work in the pharmacy industry. A student can begin with the college’s Pharmacy Technician certificate, which enables the student to work in the industry. The student can then pursue the AAS degree. Finally, if the student chooses, they may take additional courses to prepare for a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) program.

Applications for the associate in science degree (AS) in Pharmacy Technician program for fall 2014 semester will be accepted Feb. 1 through Feb. 28, 2014.
