"I'm wondering if I finish my BSN if it's even plausible for me to think that I would be able to transition to PharmD, MD, PA, or DDS (programs). I won't lie, I have my eye on PharmD due to time. I also have a general interest in almost every specialty & health related career, so I wouldn't be doing something I don't like. I love science and really love math. I'm ok with fulfilling pre-reqs. I just don't want to have to start all over again..and at the same time..I'm weighing everything out."
I know this might be a little old but I just had to say something. I'm not in the PharmD program but at one point I did consider it but I suck something awful in Chemistry but any ways, working in a pharmacy isn't fun either. The public doesn't understand that the pharmacy is the middle man, if the prescriber incorrectly writes the prescription we can't dispense it then we get cussed out from the prescriber office wanting to know why we are calling about a prescription or the patient plan won't allow them to a have certain amount or their plan sucks and they can't have the medication period. Everyone thinks its the pharmacy fault!!! Retail pharmacy is the hardest because once these patients are discharge they come to us cussing at us, spitting at us, throwing change at us, following us to our cars because we have closed for the day and the patient wants to reopen so they can buy their medication, or the patients that refuses to leave the counter or drive-thru because we asked them wait while we help the next patient or robbed, the drug addicts want those controlled substances and I'm talking about the workers LOL!!! Some pharmacists are so rude and nasty to each other and are very rude to the pharmacy technicians that work for them. I've seen pharmacists bicker at an in-patient pharmacy in a hospital because someone took their favorite computer so they can input orders. I love nurses(yall care so much) but I can count on all fingers and toes the times nurses have cussed me out or hung the phone up in my face and cussed me out oh did I say that twice LOL!! because the patient lied to them saying we refuse to dispense medication which isn't true the patient didn't want to pay the copayment or the prescriber wrote the prescription incorrectly(we just can't dispense something we can't read)! Pharmacy is ugly due to big corporations taking over, they are concerned with how fast you can get a prescription filled. Please look elsewhere like Diagnostic Sonography or Medical Technologist(Clinical Laboratory Scientist)but if you think nursing is working your nerves working in a pharmacy will too. We don't get any thank you's! Even though some nurses are rude and they back-bite but any given day I approach some of them and say I'm sick I know those nursing skills will cut on and that nasty, rude, back-biting nurse will try to nurse me back to health. We cannot do that in the pharmacy even if we wanted to cause we are the middle-man.
