Are there any registered pharmacy technicians here that transitioned to hospital pharmacy before obtaining their certification? I'm planning to schedule my test within the next couple months. I've been trying to leave retail and nothing seems to stick. I'm in Florida if that matters.

I'm stuck in a similar place as you, trying to transition into the hospital but haven't completed my certification yet. I have my test scheduled two months from now, though, so hopefully, that simplifies the transition process.

I was actually planning to schedule my test 2 months out as well.

Yes, in fact, they paid for my schooling and also my hourly while in class

I know someone who went that route and it worked out in the end. Have you tried applying yet?

I'm not sure how bad the tech shortage is in Florida, but I would still apply. I've worked with techs with 2 years of experience that outperform 5 yr techs.

My mother is a nurse so I was able to work with her HR and get into the hospital

Hi Fisher,

Just wanted to ask some out of topic question.

Mostly the question is to HR's or hiring manager.

If a fresher is doing the MBA through online mode from a reputed university, are they eligible to apply the same job which regular student is applying.

Kindly help me to understand.

Thanks in advance.

Thoughts on VaynerMedia


Is it practical if I move into an apt with my bf, pay the rent but have him pay all the other bills (groceries, wifi, cable, electricity,etc.)? For context, both of our mothers drive us off the edge at times and we don’t know how much longer we can put up with either. And he has about half my what I have in my savings. So I figured I can live with that deal mentioned above for a while so he can save up a bit more before we split 50/50. Any tips/suggestions? TIA

I can go back to work travel. I can't go back to returning on evenings. Fly me back Thr AM, or pay for me to stay the extra night and Fly me on Fri AM.
