Pharmacy Technician – Much More Than Filling Prescriptions

Gain the training and knowledge to work alongside pharmacists as a pharmacy technician. You’ll definitely learn how to fill prescriptions – including dosage calculations, pharmacology, clinical & side effects, and alternative therapies – but you’ll also gain an understanding of pharmacy law and ethics, medical terminology, and operation of both community and institutional pharmacies.

Hands-On Experience and Preparation for National Certification

You’ll gain hands-on experience in your final term, where you’ll complete an externship 
where you’ll put into practice everything you have learned in your program. An exam success class will help you achieve success in completing your Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT) exam, a nationally-recognized credential.

Programmatic Accreditation

The pharmacy technician Associate of Science and diploma programs at American National University are programmatically accredited by the Pharmacy Technician Accrediting Commission (PTAC), a collaboration between the American Society of Health–System Pharmacists and the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education.

In addition to ANU’s institutional accreditation from the Distance Education Accrediting Commission, the programmatic accreditation achieved by ANU’s pharmacy technician programs is a further validation of the quality of the program. Through a rigorous evaluation process, ANU has demonstrated compliance with 15 competency standards.
