100% Pass Rate for OFTC's Pharmacy Tech Students | Schools
Oconee Fall Line Technical College's (OFTC) Pharmacy Technology Class of 2014 achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the national Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam on Wednesday, July 23, 2014. Each student is now a Certified Pharmacy Technician and registered with the Georgia Board of Pharmacy.
These students will complete their diploma at the end of summer semester and graduate in OFTC's Commencement Ceremony on October 30th.
With the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) accreditation visit in September for OFTC's Pharmacy Technology program, the Class of 2014 will have successfully completed an ASHP accredited curriculum.
“These students exit the Pharmacy Technology program with a broader scope of the pharmacy profession, including advanced training in compounding of sterile IV preparations, chemotherapy, automated dispensing, investigational drugs, inventory management, and methodology for reduction in medication errors," said OFTC Pharmacy Technology Instructor Jack J. Shepherd.
A number of these graduates have already found employment in the coverage area, with several being hired by the clinical sites where they did experiential training.
