Some people have moms, some people have step moms, I have both. Unfortunately, I am not close to either. After the age of 13 I grew distant from my parents, and after the age of 18 I didn't have any kind of a relationship with my father. Since there hasn't been much of a structured family in my life, it always feels nice when I am welcomed into someone else’s family. Approximately one and one half years ago, I was hired as a pharmacy technician at The Pharmacy at Wellington in Little Rock. Ever since then I have felt like I have a new family. The members of the family are always coming and going. Members come when they are hired or visit for their one month stay during rotations as a fourth year pharmacy student, and they go when they graduate and have better opportunities or move away to new areas to bigger and better things. But one thing that all members of this pharmacy share while they are with us is that they all care about each other, help each other and work towards a common goal, both in their personal life, as well as in their professional life. One member of this family that stands out in particular is the mother, Brittany H. Sanders PharmD. She is a partner in the business, as well as the glue that holds the place together. Brittany is the most respected and looked up to member of my pharmacy family. I …show more content…
But I briefly met Brittany before my hire. She is one of the most professional people that I know. I didn’t know this at the time, but she would end up being my third and most influential mother. Brittany is incredibly smart, graduating pharmacy school at the age of twenty three, three years younger than normal. She then went on to be the manager of the busiest Walgreens in the state of Arkansas for seven years. She is my boss and fulfills that role, but she is also a great teacher, as well as a friend and a mentor. She is always pushing me to do my best and reach my

The book that I chose to do is Street Pharm by Allison van Diepen, the book has 297 pages, the reason I chose this book is personally I am tired novels taking place years before I am born. This novel pertains to urban problems and one kids' attempt to survive in the pressures of present day Brooklyn. Within the novel, there are several subplots, one being his love interest, Alyse, and Ty's fight to stay in school. As well as, his fight not to lose money or control of his territory. It is interesting to watch this young man, balance these things in his life and not let them interfere with each other.
My Butler University academic training and intern experience has positioned me to recognize and appreciate the essential role performed by the clinical pharmacist. Although sometimes transparent, it is the clinical pharmacist that is central to a patient’s ultimate successful recovery. This was evident during my clinical rotations, where I directly participated in the optimization of medication therapy to achieve patient-specific outcomes; it is for this reason I am impassioned and compelled to pursue a residency. As a PGY-1 resident, I plan to apply my clinical knowledge in the acute and ambulatory care settings to identify medication-related problems and make therapeutic recommendations in collaboration with other practitioners. Upon completion
In my own life I have experienced the same thing that Scout experienced. My dad is a pharmacist and runs his own business. He works at the drugstore in Skowhegan, but he also has to make sure that the drugstore in Farmington is always running smoothly. Problems never stop popping up, to-do lists get longer and longer every day, and the amount of prescriptions to be filled keep piling up. He also has to make sure that all of his employees are doing what they are supposed to be doing, such as going out to wait on the patients, or in some people’s case making sure that everything in the front store is in order; in the pharmacist’s case, they need interact with the patients and answer any questions that the customers might have. Every day, he goes
Ten years ago I set out on a journey to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming an influential pharmacist and healthcare professional within my community, however, I was unaware of all of the challenges I would be faced in pursuit of my dreams. I began seeking work while I was enrolled in my first semester of college. During my job search, I discovered a job posting for an entry level pharmacy technician at a community retail pharmacy. After reading the job description, I knew that I was on the right track to finding a career that incorporated my love for both chemistry and biology. I began work as a pharmacy technician where I learned the ins and outs of the industry and decided to enroll in the certified pharmacy technician course that was available at my college in hopes of continuing my goal of one day becoming a pharmacist.
In this so-called Digital Age, with instant access to the internet at our fingertips, it is not unusual to see pharmacists use websites as a tool to do research on information that could help them further their field of interest. The website bpsweb.org by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) is one of them. The objective of this website is to provide information for qualified pharmacists who are interested into becoming a Certified Specialty Pharmacist and help them to get certified. BPS is an effective website in terms of its visual elements and composition (formatting, audience, purpose, visual design, content), several rhetorical strategies were also employed to increase its effectiveness.
Albert Einstein once stated, “Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile”, and I sincerely deem this to be true. A little over a year ago; I interviewed at The University of Saint Joseph School of Pharmacy. During this interview, I was asked to recall a time where I had made a difference. I stated that we always make a difference, every day, but remember that I did not mention a specific moment. Although I have helped many patients since starting my career in pharmacy, for some odd reason, I could not come up with an exact moment where I felt I had truly made a difference- until a few months ago.
My Name is Stanley Azubike I come from a family that has had to work hard in order to bring me to the place I am today. My parents grew up in Nigeria, Anambra State. As children of hardship, they were dedicated to giving me and my sisters a promising future in the free and promising land of America. Having gone through hard times and sufferings from a young age, they adapted themselves to a self-motivation way of life in making sure we do well in school, go to college, graduate and make something great of our lives and surpass their expectations.
My co-worker of three years, Neda a pharmacist, would say I am social and bring order to chaos and serene the pharmacy. I recall a chaotic morning when she immediately said: “I am glad you are here to help”as I entered the pharmacy. An hour later, all patients received their medication in time for pick up, refills were filled and handed to patients, the patients were called, prescriptions were filled and pharmacy was organized again. The joy we felt after catching our breath after the chaos was worth all the paper cuts and running arounds.
I originally entered college as an ambitious business major with plans to complete the pre-med track as well. But, I quickly learned that I needed to narrow my focus to one or the other, especially taking on a demanding college baseball schedule involving year round practice and a forty game season. Although I have always been enthusiastic about business, I decided that I didn’t want to pursue a career path that would most likely put my behind a desk crunching numbers or pushing sales all day. It personally seemed to me as something that lacked real meaningfulness and an ability to make a significant impact. Meaningfulness and the ability to apply my love for science was what had always peaked my interest in the medical field. In my sophomore
I would like to pursue in a PhD to continue to position myself throughout my career after I graduate from the UNT System College of Pharmacy. As working as a pharmacist technician for 4 months, I have witnessed that many pharmacists are getting replaced by other pharmacists. I used to believe that pharmacists are very stable, but I realized that there are no stable jobs in a dog-eat-dog world. I know the importance of keep improving myself to stand out from the same groups of people. Pursing another 3 to 5 years at school after getting PharmD could give even broader perspectives in my field by having both degrees. Pursuing PhD will differentiate me form others by allowing me to become a good technical and real thinker.
I am applying for a position as a Pharmacy Technician in the Fred Meyer Pharmacy. I learned about this opportunity from the Kroger Job board online. This position will allow me to gain experience and apply my knowledge of pharmacology in a real-world setting.
The year 2002 was a year full of new beginnings for my family and I. I was ten years old, my youngest brother was born in February, and we moved away from Tennessee, and our family there, to Texas in October. Little did I know, the birth of my brother nor the move were going to be as significant as the next event that occurred.
These two days, I am spending time shadowing clinical pharmacists in different inpatient units, which turns out to be an eye-opening experience to me. For the first two days, I shadowed a clinical pharmacist in the trauma unit. It is really cool to see how different healthcare professions work as a healthcare team in a level 1 trauma hospital, with daily rounds and close cooperation between the pharmacist and other care providers. Today, my pharmacist and I discuss an ethical case which I think it is worthy to share. The case is a 92-year-old Hmong man who admitted to the hospital in early April and stays in the inpatient unit ever since. His main concern is multiple drug resistant tuberculosis, however, he refuses to take his medications including
I have always been the one person to stand out. I started standing out mostly in my academics in kindergarten. The academically gifted program at my elementary school spotted my high academic ability in both math and science. I was in this program all the way through the end of middle school. In the 7th grade I had the opportunity to do a project on the career I thought was most interesting. For this project I chose the career a pharmacist. While doing this project, I found out that I really like what this career is about. Since that project, I have done more research on pharmacist, and I have been set on this career ever since.
