ANU recognizes organizations who support employment in their community by hiring highly-qualified ANU graduates, and by providing tuition assistance for their employees to attend ANU, or by providing the opportunity to receive hands-on training in a work environment through our externship program.

RX Institutional Services (RXIS) was recently recognized for its support of the ANU Youngstown Campus’s pharmacy technician program

RXIS, a division of Hometown Pharmacy Solutions (HPS), was established in 2007. It provides pharmaceutical services to assisted living, personal care, group homes and skilled nursing facilities throughout Pennsylvania and Ohio. RXIS is a leader in pharmacy services, offering E-Prescribing and state of the art systems to improve workflow and med-pass times.

Because of the types of services provided, and the need to employ experienced and educated pharmacy techs, RXIS became a partner with ANU.  This has proved to be a winning situation for both RXIS and our ANU students. In the last several years, RXIS has taken on six ANU externs and has hired three of them.

Because of the support that RXIS has provided to ANU students and graduates, it was presented with the ANU Distinguished Community Employer Award.  The award was created to show our appreciation to organizations and business that support our philosophy of educating students and developing them into productive employees.

The campus would particularly like to thank Ron McDermott, HPS senior VP of pharmacy operations, and Doug Christy, RXIS director of pharmacy, for their continued support of ANU and our pharmacy technician students. The support of employers like RXIS is vital to the successful training of career college students as they seek to gain the skills they need to serve their community.
