Becoming a Pharmacist Technician?

For reliable information about pharmacy, check the website of the AACP - American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy - easy to google!

Pharmacists attend 2 to 4 years of college, then attend a college of pharmacy for four years. Some pharmacists do 1 or 2 years of residency training after they receive their Doctor of Pharmacy degree. They make very high salaries, sometimes over $100,000 a year.

Pharmacy technicians do not require a college degree. This job gives good working conditions, good job security and a decent salary of between $20 to $30,000 per year depending on what skills you learn.

It only takes a few months to learn the basic skills. You do not have to be a science whiz but it does help if you are OK in math and can do basic math with no problems, or even a little bit of algebra. Also, you must be a very reliably, honest person - can't have anyone working with drugs who isn't honest.

To find out about pharmacy tech training in your state, I would try to check with the pharmacists in the local drug stores. If you just ask them about it sometime when they are not busy, I'm sure they would be happy to talk to you...

How would Obama’s universal healthcare benefit the American people?

How would Obama's universal healthcare benefit the American people?

Hawaii enacted a program similar to Obama's.

It provided affordable healthcare for kids 18 and under. You could keep your current insurance if you already had it.

After 7 months of operation, it FAILED. The state realized it wouldn't have the money to pay for it after too many people were ditching their insurance for the govt program. According to an official, that wasn't the intention of the program.

How can universal healthcare work on a national level if it failed on a state level, when it was targeting only children? How can it work if we barely have budget?

After living in Shanghai for three years, Sarah, her husband, Jason, and their young son, Sammy, return to North America for a family funeral. But something strange is going on. Sammy starts seeing ghosts and then falls gravely ill. Traditional western medicine offers no hope. Sarah turns to a mysterious pharmacist who warns that her son is being held in a death grip by a living corpse. Sarah must find out what the spirits want if she is to save her child. Time is of the essence; once the sun rises the next day, the last day of Ghost Month, Sammy will be lost forever.

Here's the movie trailer and a film clip:

I'm certain that this is the film you are looking for. It airs fairly often on Chiller Channel, so I've gotten to watch it a number of times. It has to do with Ghost Month, but that isn't its title. The first poster might have seen this movie, but the link is to a trailer for a more-recent film.
