In my experience at Northwest Suburban College, the Pharmacy Technician track focuses on education, knowing the names of common drugs, their purposes, and potential drug interactions. There are also practical labs, teaching how to use common pharmacy software, mixing drugs, or simply familiarizing oneself with where information is written on a bottle, such as NDC. The course is broad, which allows students to understand the general and underlying works of pharmacy, which are relevant for all pharmacies, and opens the door for more specificity later on. I have definitely benefited from this, both in my technician externship, and in my pharmacy technician role.

My name is Galilea Marquez, I was a student at Northwest Suburban College. I graduated from here August 2021, and I did my externship hours at Jabri Medical in Bloomingdale. My experience in this college was really good, I really liked it. This program took about 8 months to finish all my classes and to do my externship hours. As soon as I graduated, I got hired by a great doctor (Dr. Mansoor Khan). I recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a great and quick program. My rate for this school would be a 5.
