Pharmacy Technician Students Prepare for Externships



Pharmacy Technician Students Prepare for Externships

ANU is well-known for the hands-on experience that students gain in their classes.  As the Summer Term came to a close, students in the pharmacy technician program at the ANU Princeton Campus practiced asepsis and aseptic technique under the watchful eye of instructor Rebecca Thompson, CPhT, LPN, RMA.

“The lab gave the students the vital hands-on practice they need prior to going out on their externships.”

The students were required to be garbed in appropriate clothing while mixing under the laminar flow hood.  They mixed IV (intravenous) medications such as Potassium Chloride, Ampicillin, Vasotec, and Fentanyl. Calculations were performed prior to admixture and checked by Rebecca.

“This process is very important in the daily activities of a pharmacy technician in the field,” said Rebecca. “The lab gave the students the vital hands-on practice they need prior to going out on their externships.”
