What Can You Do To Celebrate Pharmacists?
One of the best ways to celebrate this month is reaching out to your local pharmacists' and thanking them for all of the hard work they do for you and the community.

Becoming a Pharmacist
It's not a short or easy road to become a pharmacist. Below are the requirements they go through to become a professional.
- Earn a Doctor of Pharmacy Degree: Most students usually have a bachelors degree or at least 3 years of college experience before starting their journey at pharmacy school. From there, it usually takes about 4 years to receive all of the necessary credits. In most circumstances, you have to take the Pharmacy College Admissions Test (PCAT) to be granted enrollment in the program.
- Licensing and Certification: It's not enough to just make it through pharmacy school, you also have to take and pass the North American Pharmacist Licensure Exam (NAPLEX).
