Pharmacist Recruitment Firm

pharmacy jobsPharmacy owners and managers are all faced with the same dilemma – “How do we hire the right Pharmacist for the job?”. As everyone already knows, it is more than simply finding a “warm body” to fill the position. It requires that the candidate posses the right skill sets, qualifications, licensing requirements and experience to fill the pharmacist position and job description perfectly. The first time around!

From the pharmacist’s perspective, one has to include salary, benefits, geography, shift hours and company culture into their decision making process. Most employers find the process tedious and painful, even those with full time HR departments. For most pharmacy owners and managers the hiring of a pharmacist to fill an opening is a reactive process that must take precedence over their daily job tasks. This leads to hiring mistakes that costs their business both time and money. So how is this to be avoided and the process of recruiting the right pharmacist made efficient and Painless?

What’s the Problem in Recruiting the Right Pharmacist?

The problem in recruiting and then hiring pharmacists is actually twofold. The first centers on skill and timing. The majority of pharmacy owners, directors and managers admit that hiring is not their strong point. Their success is in running and managing the pharmacy as a business operation. Maximizing the businesses efficiency, profitability and cash flow are their primary concern & should be. Finding, interviewing and hiring a new pharmacist is a time consuming endeavor that requires the skill and time that most employers simply don’t have.

The second challenge is the competitive nature of the pharmacist job market. Currently there are simply more jobs than pharmacists. A search on the largest job site Indeed shows 19,928 positions available today throughout the country. Although this will perhaps change due to the projected increase in the number of pharmacy graduates (according to an article in Medscape), currently the reality is that open positions far outdistance the number of potential candidates that are realistically available. Also, perhaps the pharmacy school accreditation issues seen several years ago will only lead to a future problem of a shortage of qualified pharmacists that can fit your individual pharmacy’s needs and skill set requirements for the position that you need filled.

Need Relief or Temporary Pharmacist

Emergency Relief and Temporary Pharmacist StaffingThe issue of getting qualified relief or temporary pharmacist staffing when you suddenly need a pharmacist became an even larger one last year based on the news this past year regarding two pharmacy schools either losing their accreditation or facing the possibility of losing it. Let’s quickly discuss the two cases and how it could affect your pharmacy operation and business when you require or need a pharmacist in 2022 for relief or temporary staffing services.

Hampton University Loses Accreditation

At their Board of Directors meeting a year ago, The Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), announced that they had revoked the Hampton University School of Pharmacy’s accreditation. Additionally, the school’s Pharm D. (Doctor of Pharmacy) program had been placed on probation all the way back in July of 2017. The Board cited that two of its primary educational standards, “progression & educational outcomes”, had not been met by the educational institution.

State laws requires all pharmacists to graduate from an ACPE-accredited school in order to work as a Registered Pharmacist (R. Ph.). or a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm D). The ACPE did allow Hampton University to implement a plan that lets currently enrolled students switch schools and thus graduate from an accredited program. But after the class of 2023, graduates won’t have degrees from an accredited pharmacy college or school any longer. It should be noted that the Hampton University pharmacy program is currently placed on “probationary status” while it appeals the ACPE revocation of their accreditation.

Auburn University Cheating Investigation

The Harrison School of Pharmacy at Auburn University in Alabama went under investigation for alleged widespread cheating by pharmacy students a year ago. Auburn University’s pharmacy program was ranked by the most recent U.S. News & World Report to be among the top twenty percent (20%) of pharmacy schools in the nation, offering students both Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Pharmacy degrees, as well as graduate degrees in Pharmaceutical Sciences.

In an email to the student body at the pharmacy school, Dean Richard A. Hansen PhD stated that: “We learned of potentially widespread cheating among our P1-P3 students. We are still gathering information, but I wanted everyone to be aware of the issue, the actions we are taking, and our anticipated timeline. After gathering some initial data, I addressed each of the P1 – P3 classes and offered leniency for those that voluntarily came forward. Since this time, we have met with a number of students that have revealed their actions and identified others that were involved. This continues to unfold as we uncover new people involved”.
Although some students may have voluntarily come forward and cooperated with the investigators, it’s anticipated that students who did not turn themselves in will face further sanctions or even potential dismissal from the pharmacy school’s program.

Fewer Pharmacist To Choose From?

The two examples cited above can only add to the current problem of more relief and temporary pharmacist jobs than pharmacists available to fill them. Being in the pharmacy staffing industry for over 33+ years now, our experience is that there are far fewer pharmacists who choose to work extra jobs as relief anymore. The same is true of those that choose to work only in temporary pharmacy staffing positions.

Based on a survey released by the AACP (American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy) back in 2014 called the National Pharmacist Workforce Study, statistics revealed that only about 8% of all pharmacists nationally worked a second job as a relief pharmacist. Back in the 1990’s this number was estimated to be around 15%. Additionally, the average extra time worked by a pharmacist as relief was an estimated six hours weekly. This represents a significant decrease from the estimated 10 – 12 hours that pharmacists “moon lighted” back in the 1990’s. The study noted that a significant decrease regarding available pharmacists working part-time or as relief was seen every year since 2009. One can only see this trend continuing, leading to a smaller pool of pharmacists to choose from should you need them.

What Are the Issues of Finding Pharmacy Relief Services?

The issues involved that one should think about in finding a relief pharmacist can be summed up quickly:

– What staffing agency should I call?
Many find that most pharmacy staffing agencies are either very small or very large when needing one. The smaller ones have very limited resources, while the larger ones are harder to do business with as a new client (as they are focused primarily on satisfying their existing, regular and mostly larger clients first).

– Do they have experienced and dependable Pharmacists to send for relief services?
Many pharmacy staffing agencies have a very limited pool of candidates to choose from. Being limited geographically may mean that their available resources are already being utilized, or that the pharmacists that they can offer may not be dependable. What could be worse than expecting some peace of mind while dealing with a personal emergency situation and getting a call that the temporary pharmacist was a “no show” that day?

– Quality choices that meet your specific needs are a major concern.
If you are operating any type of specialty pharmacy (compounding, IV infusion, oncology, mail order, etc.) you may realize that not just any relief pharmacist can walk in and function in your environment. This may be true in many retail community pharmacy environments also. Even with experience, is the pharmacist of the quality and possess the required experience and skills that you (and your patients) expect?

– Pricing and costs are always a consideration!
A major factor in choosing a pharmacy staffing agency to meet your relief needs is obviously the cost. In certain instances the pricing may be a secondary issue, but let’s be realistic: Price is always an issue. When it comes to supply and demand, an agency with few available candidates will charge more. Travel charges may also be added on that will inflate the cost of the fill-in pharmacist. Also keep in mind that in the 1990’s the average salary for a pharmacist was about $50,000. Comparing that number to the average pharmacist’s salary of between $112,000 – $119,000 in 2016, one can easily draw the conclusion that perhaps the cost of a relief or temp pharmacist prohibits a pharmacy owner from ever going on a vacation or having an emergency!

– Seasonality is sometimes a major concern when getting pharmacy relief for your business.
In many cases seasonality will affect both the availability and the price. High demand during certain times of the year are a normal factor on both pharmacist selection and cost. Holidays are a great example. How many qualified pharmacists want to actually spend the major holidays working? Recent statistics show that fewer and fewer pharmacists will give up their precious “free time” than ever before.

Being Prepared Versus Reactive

To avoid future problems when looking for a relief pharmacist and for available qualified pharmacists to meet any temporary needs you may have that arise, one must embrace the following adage that most major companies have learned over time: Hiring is an ongoing process not event. Another way of saying it is “be prepared”. Here at HCC Pharmacy Staffing we have been actively “preaching” to both clients and potential clients to be pro-active when it comes to the issue of getting a dependable and qualified relief pharmacist in place for when the need arises. Yet the reality is that the majority of pharmacy owners are reactive and not prepared when the time comes. The old cliché that has become HCC’s tagline over the past 33+ years is that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”! This certainly applies to getting an experienced and dependable temporary pharmacist quickly when the situation requires one.

Pharmacy Job Tips

Pharmacy Job Tips for Switching JobsNumerous pharmacists have recently switched jobs, while many others are considering a change to a new work direction or setting as the profession of pharmacy evolves in the wake of  the Covid-19 pandemic’s aftermath. With New Year’s resolutions on everyone’s minds, changing jobs as a pharmacist can be a very tempting idea at this time. It has been well over a half dozen years years since the AACP (American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy) first released it’s National Pharmacist Workforce Study way back in 2014, but the results are basically the same in 2022. The trends that the study documented all still continue to be accurate in today’s practice of the Pharmacy profession :

– Women (female) pharmacists outnumber men (male) pharmacists.
Over 57% of actively licensed practicing pharmacists in the United States are now women. It is interesting to note though that ownership of pharmacies is still predominantly dominated by men, with over 70% of all the independent retail community pharmacies owned by a male pharmacist.

– Pharmacy graduates are outpacing the creation of new jobs.
In 1987 a total of 72 pharmacy schools existed in the US. In 2014, according to the AACP there were 130 accredited pharmacy colleges. As of July of 2019, there were 143 US based colleges and schools of pharmacy with accredited (full or candidate status) professional degree programs, plus one 1 school with precandidate status, for a total of 144 colleges and schools. The last numbers released show a decrease (although still staggering) total of 140. The Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) is the national agency recognized by both the Council on Higher Education Accreditation and the US Department of Education, and it is ultimately the agency responsible for accrediting the pharmacy programs.

– Pharmacy positions are becoming much more specialized and diversified.
In 2014 the total number of practicing pharmacists throughout the nation actually working in retail positions fell below 50% for the first time ever to around 44%. The move away from retail pharmacy jobs showed an astonishing increase in pharmacists now working in hospitals (30%) and other practice areas and specialties (25%). Although the latest available numbers numbers released this past July now show a reversal of this pattern with retail pharmacy jobs now comprising an estimated 58%, pharmacists as a profession are constantly assuming greater responsibility in patient care, and more pharmacists are continuing to step outside of their old traditional practice settings by switching jobs.

What is the Actual Pharmacist Job Turnover Average Annually?

Although the only actual number that could be found regarding pharmacist job turnover is perhaps outdated (the study took place from 1983 through 1997), the national average was 11% per year. Perhaps equally important to note was that the pharmacists who left and switched jobs primarily made the change in less than three years. The primary reason for leaving a pharmacy position was attributed to stress and perhaps surprisingly, citing salary for the reason for “job switching” was fourth down on the list (following stress, career advancement opportunities, geography and, finally, salary).

We should also quickly mention the Millennials. Named by Gallup as “The Job-Hopping Generation”, these younger professionals exhibit a tendency never before seen in the history of pharmacy (or other professions for that matter). A 2016 study on LinkedIn showed that Millennials average a change in jobs four times in their first decade of work after getting out of college. That’s nearly double the rate of the Gen-Xers before them (graduating college between 1985 – 1992) who averaged about two job changes in their first 10 years of work.
Although the past recession may have contributed to this phenomena of “job hopping”, causing many pharmacy graduates into accepting jobs they perhaps were not excited about, the primary motivation according to CNN is that the “Millennials want to move up the ranks quickly. One of the fastest ways to do that is to change jobs. A new role often comes with a more elevated title and a substantial pay raise (15% or more versus 1 to 3% by someone staying in their current role)”.

A “Quick Tip List” to Consider Before Changing Pharmacy Jobs

Today, as the expansion of patient focused healthcare services has changed the entire landscape of the workplace, many new pharmacy job opportunities and career paths are available to a pharmacist to consider and evaluate than ever existed in the past. Retail, hospital, specialty, clinical, mail-order, compounding, nuclear….. the list of possibilities for pharmacy career paths has become almost endless. So here is some “free advice” from pharmacy staffing experts who have been dealing with pharmacists switching positions for over 32+ years now.

1. Take your time. The decision to change jobs or career paths is a major decision. Take the time to explore all the possibilities that are available to you.
You may be surprised that, perhaps, there are more special and diverse opportunities than you initially thought.

2. Start by taking a personal self-audit by considering the following questions:
– What are my short term and long range goals?
– What pharmacy setting appeals to me, and is my personality a good fit for that type of environment or setting?
– What pharmacy sector fits in with my lifestyle?
– What professional and personal growth opportunities are available?

3. The next step is to talk with some pharmacists who actually practice in the areas of your pharmacy interest. Who better to ask questions regarding professional development and opportunities than the pharmacists that are actually practicing in those areas? In today’s world of social media, blogging and online engagement, access to individual professionals has become very fast and easy! Take some time and communicate with several individuals who can share their experience and are willing to help fellow members of the pharmacy community on the exciting and changing career paths now available to all of us.

4. Lastly, consider trying several different pharmacy job types before actually making the commitment to a specific pharmacy setting. This is where Healthcare Consultants Pharmacy Staffing (HCC) may be able to assist and help you. At HCC we have been finding that many pharmacists would rather initially “try out” several career path options before deciding on a permanent practice setting. This allows the individual to get actual experience in several different clinical &/or retail settings to see which opportunities best fit their goals, personality and lifestyles.

If you are seriously considering making a change, HCC can help you to “boost” your chances for success.

Amazons Effects On Pharmacist Staffing And Salaries

amazon pharmacy and how it is affecting pharmacist hiring and salariesOnline retail giant Amazon has dominated the recent media and news channels with its opening of an online retail pharmacy. The pharmacy can be found at pharmacy.amazon.com and is basically a self-supporting website that’s actually separated from their primary online website. The website is basically designed for patients to have their prescriptions prescribed by their doctor or physician, then filled and delivered to you by Amazon Pharmacy. This Amazon Pharmacy business model very much is based on the concept of mail order pharmacies: Get the patient or customer to place the initial order initiated by their doctor, then continuously provide the customers with refills shipped to them at certain time intervals such as 30, 60 or 90 days.

What Amazon Pharmacy Offers Patients

Amazon certainly has been planning this move for a long time. Way back in August 2017, the big news of the day centered around their plans to enter the prescription drug arena by developing an online presence. We even discussed how Amazon would affect existing mail-order pharmacy operations and retail community pharmacy businesses by doing it.

So after almost three years of discussion and careful planning, Amazon pulls the trigger and opens their Amazon Pharmacy doors to the public. Rx fulfillment, dispensing and shipping are what they offer. Yet they are able to make the following promises to potential patients (customers):

  1. Providing prescription pharmacy pricing that’s “clear and understandable”
  2. Secure patient medical records
  3. Always having a Pharmacist available for patients (customers) to speak with and receive a personal consultation if necessary
  4. Never again standing in a line at a pharmacy
  5. Never having to worry again about your medications and refills (in other words, peace of mind and no anxiety for their patients)

It is very clear to see that Amazon Pharmacy offers something of “perceived” value to both potential new patients, and to their existing customer base. Ease of use online with a well thought out website, great pricing, no lines to stand in while waiting for your prescriptions, plus the peace of mind that Amazon’s reputation for outstanding customer service inherently leads to decreases of both the stress levels and worrying by the patients or their family members responsible for getting their prescription medications.

What are Amazon’s Potential Effects on Pharmacist Staffing and Salaries?

To answer this as best as we can, we all need to keep in mind several factors that Amazon is basing its decision on to enter the prescription medication market.

Service – According to several recent consumer surveys, customers are more willing today to pay for customer service than ever before. Especially consumers in the senior citizen population segment.

Pricing – Prescription sales comprise roughly 95% of the average independent’s gross revenue. Compare this to the large retail chains that average roughly an estimated 50% and make most of their profit on non-prescription items and front-end merchandise. Amazon is obviously well known for having lower prices on items than their “physically restricted” retail competitors, plus they are able to stock almost all items offered (or obtain them quickly from their partners and other resources).

Wait Time – the wait time in most retail chain stores is usually extremely long and, as consumer surveys have always shown, “very stressful” to many customers. This is even more true for elderly consumers and geriatric patients. Many times a patient is extremely ill and an hour or more wait can seem like an eternity to them.

An Aging Population – People are living longer than ever before and that means more prescription sales. In the US alone, projections estimate that the number of citizens 65 and older will more than double from 46 million today to over 98 million by 2060. Even more significant are the projections that the senior citizen (65 and older) age group’s share of the total population will increase from the current 15% to a staggering 24%.

Additional ReasonsForbes also noted additional reasons that they were predicting Amazon Pharmacy to be a huge success: the ability to track your orders, the ease of setting up your account, choice of choosing your own packaging, online chat functionality, plus analytics to prevent adverse drug events or reactions from occurring.

What this all really means is that if Amazon Pharmacy is successful, many retail community pharmacies and mail-order specialty pharmacy businesses will most likely suffer with a loss of market share. It’s clear to see that Amazon offers something of “perceived’ value to everybody! The online ease of use is very appealing to both the Millennials and Baby Boomers alike these days. Whether a patient lives in a rural area or in the middle of a major metropolitan area or city, many will find utilizing Amazon Services to be extremely beneficial and switch to it. As will most consumers who are price conscious when shopping on a fixed budget, considering that over one-third of all online shopping, “price checks”, and product pricing comparisons now originate on Amazon anyway.

There’s no reason to believe that Amazon’s “experiment” in selling pharmacy prescriptions online will result in anything but tremendous results and success. With a recurring revenue model based on the continuous refilling of patients’ prescriptions, Amazon is ready to “rock and roll” and has had over three years to plan. The final results will obviously take place over the years to come, but the obvious initial results are both the loss in demand for retail pharmacists, and the projected increase in pharmacists out of work and looking for jobs. Lastly, the potential for the lowering of pharmacist salaries across the nation has been postulated by several labor industry experts to take place in a couple of years as a result of a “glut” of available retail candidates for fewer positions available than before Amazon Pharmacy opened their doors.

Retail Pharmacist to Hospital Pharmacy Job

hospital pharmacyPharmacists are increasingly switching from retail to hospital pharmacy settings over the past five to ten years according to both the US Department of Labor statistics and numerous industry experts. With the COVID-19 pandemic still currently raging out of control in the United States, a the forecast of “doom and gloom” that’s projecting a very scary winter season this year for the pandemic, many healthcare professionals  are “calling it quits” or switching to less stressful jobs according to a new article released by the New York Times yesterday. 

How are US Healthcare Workers Responding to the COVID Pandemic?

Many healthcare workers are simply calling it quits. As an example, thousands of medical offices and practices have closed during the pandemic, according to a survey released by the non-profit group known as the Physicians Foundation.  In a July survey of approximately thirty-five hundred US physicians, eight percent of the doctors reported closing their offices already. An additional four percent responded to the survey saying that they planned to shut their practices down within the next six to twelve months.

The Effect of the COVID-19 Pandemic On Healthcare Professionals

Many healthcare professionals such as doctors, pharmacists and nurses are retiring early, taking leaves of absence, or simply quitting their jobs. A majority of them worry about their own health because of their age or a medical condition that puts them at high risk, but many are afraid of contracting the virus at work and then spreading it to their family, loved ones and neighbors. Some practitioners stopped practicing during the worst of the outbreaks and now state that they simply don’t have the energy required to start practicing again. Many just needed a break from the stress and death toll that the pandemic has taken among their ranks and their patients.
Another revealing study just released by the  non-profit group Primary Care Collaborative (at the Larry A, Green Center), reported similar results and patterns. Nearly twenty percent of US primary care clinicians surveyed in September reported that someone in their practice plans to retire early or has already retired because of Covid-19, and fifteen percent said that someone has left or has plans to leave the practice.
Pharmacists also painted a grim picture of their lives, as the pandemic entered into a new and robust period resulting in record cases in the United States on a daily basis. Already mentally exhausted, many pharmacists are worried that retail settings may not offer the best solution to their  current and/or future job needs.

Switching From Retail to Hospital Pharmacy

Many retail pharmacists have already switched to hospital pharmacy jobs recently. Hospital pharmacists decades ago were paid salaries that were lower compared to salaries for retail, community , independent and chain store pharmacists. Now studies show that the reverse of this is true. Taking into consideration longevity of being in a position, geographical considerations and the nature of the pharmacy position and duties being performed by the pharmacist on staff, hospital pharmacy salaries now surpass those of most retail positions. Additionally, hospital pharmacies offer a wide range of possibilities for advancement that cannot be found in most community retail pharmacy environments.

Are you a retail or community pharmacist thinking about switching to a hospital pharmacy position? Healthcare Consultants Pharmacy Staffing can help you! Hospital pharmacy positions comprise between 15 -20% of all available practicing pharmacy jobs these days, but making the switch can be challenging. Transferring from being a retail or community druggist to a position in a hospital setting can be a major challenge even for well qualified pharmacists. Hospital pharmacy has become a very competitive portion of pharmacy staffing positions and transferring from the retail community pharmacy environment to the hospital sector can therefore present numerous challenges for pharmacists. Mary Evans, Chief Pharmacist at Luton and Dunstable Hospital, is involved in the recruitment of senior hospital Pharmacy staff, and has seen the process change over the years. “If you go back ten years or so, most hospitals had some pharmacists in dispensing roles, so community pharmacists could move more easily into a dispensary pharmacist or dispensary manager role,” she says, “but now that route no longer exists because dispensing has become more technician-led.” Keep in mind that as a community pharmacist you do possess skills that many hospital pharmacists lack. These are basically patient centered consultation and customer oriented experience that many hospital pharmacists do not have. Customer service skills and consulting with patients regarding their medications and needs are being valued as important skills in a hospital pharmacy role and most community pharmacists have the experience and skill set required. As noted in The Pharmaceutical Journal, “Hospital pharmacists tend not to be as good at those skills, especially those in junior roles. Hospital pharmacists can get distracted by drug charts, patient notes and so on, and can avoid talking to patients if they are nervous of it, so can lack patient-facing experience, which community pharmacists do have. Confidence is the thing”.

Tips for Transitioning to Hospital Pharmacy From Retail

A “quick” list of some tips and things that a pharmacist should consider before making the Retail to Hospital Pharmacist transition include:

  1. Hospital Pharmacy is a “fast paced environment”. It may not be the slow paced environment that many of us remember from the “old days”.
  2. Although you may not have to deal with “difficult” customers, keep in mind that doctors and nurses can also sometimes be difficult to deal with.
  3. Compounding medications is a skill that is taxing on an individual. Many pharmacists do not realize the physical nature of mixing injectables in a Laminar Flow Hood. Pharmacists with back problems may find this a major negative.
  4. The hours can be a negative (especially if you are the “newbie” and hired for the infamous “graveyard shift”). Hospitals never close, even on holidays. That means 24/7/365!
  5. Keeping up on your clinical knowledge is a must! Changes in hospital pharmacy occur more quickly than elsewhere. It is essential that the hospital pharmacist continuously read clinical journals and articles on a regular basis.

Pharmacists Working Second Job

Pharmacists are known for working two jobs. A commonly cited survey by the Bureau of Labor Statistics revealed that approximately one out of almost every seven registered pharmacists (13%) work a second job in the United States. Although most people think the primary reason that pharmacists take on a second job and “moonlight” is simply for the money, there’s also  several other primary reasons that they do it:
– Insecurity at their present job
– Expanding their skill sets in a different pharmacy setting or specialty
– Getting their “foot in the door” at a better place to work if an opportunity opens up in the future
– Obtaining benefits such as better insurance or discounts
– Alleviate boredom during spare time

Tips for Pharmacists Looking for a Second Job

Whatever the motivation is for looking for a second job, planning is the key to success. Plenty of pharmacists who “moonlight” have successfully figured out how to work both their full time job, plus a part time job without getting exhausted or “burned out” over time. So whether you’re doing it to simply increase your income stream or for some of the other various reasons, consider some of the following tips when getting started.

– Have a Plan:

As with every other aspect of our lives, planning is always the key to our successes. Although the plan sometimes may need fine-tuning and adjusting, plus absolutely requires flexibility on our part at times to get where we want to be, a “road map” is always required to get us to our destination efficiently and as quickly as possible. Would you get into a car and simply start driving aimlessly without a road map or a navigation unit towards where you “believe” your destination to be? Of course not! The same concept applies to working a second job. Knowing where you want to end up is great, but planning on how to get there before “starting your engine” will save you both time and frustration.

– Set Goals:

As we’ve previously discussed numerous times in the past on our blog posts , setting realistic goals is the very best way we can measure our success in life. Goals should always be what are known as SMART – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time oriented. Having goals and checking how you are doing against those goals will give you a way of measuring how working a second job is working out for you.

– Separate Your Full-time and Part-time Jobs:

Never present yourself or your employer with a conflict of interest. Try to always remember that your full-time job takes precedence over working a second job and that your primary fulltime job is what enables you to work a second job in the first place. Additionally, don’t use your full-time job’s resources for your second job. This includes your time, but also items such as office supplies, copiers and phones.

– Consider the Geography:

Travel time is part of the planning. Does your schedule allow for it? Perhaps a second job opportunity pays less, but is closer to your home? Actually physically driving the route between the jobs at the same time of the day you normally would may be a great way to judge how long it would really actually take you to get to a second job.

– Time Management:

Most pharmacists who “juggle” two jobs have excellent time management skills. This may be something that you will need to practice in order to be able to perform at your very best. Try to always keep in mind that there are only so many hours in a day. You may find that working a second job in a pharmacy requires that you work odd hours and shifts – nights, weekends and holidays. Work, family, sleep, relaxation, travel time and simply running routine errands all require excellent personal time management skills and the ability to keep on a schedule.

– Make Your Full-time Job Your Priority:

It may be a good idea for you to initially check with your employer regarding any policies existing regarding working a second job. Most employers do not prohibit working second jobs, but it is certainly wise to check and make sure that you are not breaking any rules from the very beginning. Employers are primarily concerned regarding any conflicts of interest and your productivity while you are at work. As long as you keep this in mind and working a second job doesn’t interfere with your productivity, then you should never have any issues. Additionally, if you signed a non-compete, non-disclosure and/or confidentiality agreement, you may not be legally able to work for your primary employer’s competition. It is best to check first to make sure that you never place your primary job in jeopardy in any way.

Where Do You Find the “Right” Second Job?

With more pharmacists competing for fewer jobs these days, the question of where to find the right second job has become more of an issue than in previous years. Here are a few examples of where the pharmacists who responded to the Bureau of Labor Statistics survey found a second job:
1. Working for a previous employer. Already knowing the personnel and the work routine is a benefit to both the pharmacist and the employer. A great example of the old cliche “never burn your bridges behind you” when leaving a position.
2. Working at a pharmacy that you hope to work for in the future. Getting a part time position in a setting that you feel may be part of your future work goals allows you to “try out” the job to see if it actually meets your needs and expectations. It also lets the employer see your work ethics and get to know you. This is extremely important in cases where a position is lucrative and hard to get when there is a full-time opening available.
3. Volunteering in your community. It is enlightening to research how many communities actually need pharmacists as volunteers. There are various understaffed local programs that could use some help.
4. Utilizing a third-party staffing company (such as Healthcare Consultants Pharmacy Staffing).

Florida Registered Pharmacy Technician and CPhT Jobs

With COVID-19 cases rising in many states, and flu season on its way, CVS just announced that it’s planning to add an additional 15,000 pharmacy workers by the end of 2020 in order to handle the steadily rising numbers of COVID-19 infections seen currently in many states and the flu season just around the corner. The big-chain retail giant stated that the majority of these new employees will be technicians who will assist with COVID-19 testing, flu shots and maybe even the administration of an eventual COVID-19 vaccine in patients.

As is the case in most states, pharmacy technicians are an integral part of the pharmacy team in Florida. Officially known as CPhT’s, pharmacy technicians play a significant role in all pharmacy types such as retail community pharmacies, hospital pharmacies, long term care facilities, specialty pharmacies, compounding pharmacies and mail-order pharmacy operations. The pharmacy technicians in Florida even contribute by working in additional ancillary environments outside of actual pharmacy roles in various other industries including insurance companies, pharmaceutical manufacturers and medical software development firms.

Who Regulates Pharmacy Technicians in Florida?

The governance and regulating of pharmacy technicians in Florida is performed by the Florida Board of Pharmacy as specified by the 2016 Florida Statutes 465.014 of the Florida Legislature. As mandated, any pharmacy technician working in Florida must be registered with the Florida Board of Pharmacy and must first go through the required application process. Along with the registration application form itself and the submission of a technician’s social security form, the applicant must also have completed a Florida Pharmacy Board approved pharmacy technician training program to receive their certification. Some of the pharmacy technician training programs that are approved by the Florida Board of Pharmacy include the programs provided by ASHP (American Society of Health-System Pharmacists), SASCOC (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools), CIE (Florida Commission for Independent Education) and the COE (Council on Occupational Education). Additionally, any pharmacy technician that has served in the US armed forces (and has proof of training program completion) may apply for registration in Florida. There are also various “employer based” pharmacy technician training programs that have been approved by the Florida Board of Pharmacy. To see if a particular “employer based” pharmacy technician training program is approved, simply go to Florida Health or Department of Health License Verification and search under “Pharmacy Technician Training Programs.”

Continuing Education (CE) for registered pharmacy technicians in Florida is required annually. The annual CE requirements total 20 hours and are broken done as:
– 18 General hours (these can be either ACPE or Board approved)
– 2 Medication Errors hours (must be  Board approved)
Additionally, 4 hours of the total 20 CE hours required for the annual registration renewal must be live (i. e. the technician must physically attend a Board approved CE session).

For more information on Pharmacy Technicians in all other states than Florida, the PTCB (Pharmacy Technician Certification Board) is an excellent resource available to everyone. In most cases, the State Board of Pharmacy offers guidance on becoming a CPhT in their individual state (and information on becoming registered and Continuing Education requirements for their individual state).

What are a Pharmacy Technician’s Job Roles and Tasks?

Working under the direct supervision of a licensed pharmacist, pharmacy technicians provide invaluable support to patients by their contributions to the patient’s medication delivery, compliance and overall drug therapies. Job duties for pharmacy technicians vary by setting, but may include involvement in the preparation and dispensing of medications and IV solutions, communication with patients, physician’s offices and insurance companies and various additional pharmacy administrative roles.
As of April 15th of 2016 the rules for the pharmacist to registered technician ratios (64B16-27.4001, 64B16—27.410, 64B16-27.420, 64B16-27.430, 64B16-27.440) still allow for a 1:1 ratio of one registered pharmacist supervising one registered pharmacy technician. However, the provisions allow for the following ratios to be in place:
– A 3:1 ratio – registered technicians assisting with delegable tasks involving sterile compounding
– A 4:1 ratio – as long as delegable tasks do not include sterile compounding
– A 6:1 ratio – pharmacies that don’t dispense medicinal drugs and delegable tasks do not include sterile compounding
Any ratios outside of these need to be approved by the Florida Board of Pharmacy.

Delegable Tasks Vs. Non-Delegable Tasks for Pharmacy Technicians

What are termed as “Delegable Tasks” that may be performed by a registered pharmacy technician under the direct supervision of a registered pharmacist in Florida include:
– Data entry of patient information and medications
– Retrieval of prescription files (including a patient’s files and profile information)
– The labeling of prescriptions
– Counting, measuring, weighing, and pouring of prescription or stock drugs (including legend drugs and controlled substances)
– Accepting a physician’s authorization to refill an existing prescription that has no refills remaining
– Filling of an automated medication system
– Participation in quality improvement related events, meetings, or presentations

What are termed as “Non-Delegable Tasks” that may NOT be performed by a registered pharmacy technician include:
– Engaging a patient or family member in any form of patient counseling
– Preparing a copy of a prescription or reading a prescription to any person for purpose of providing reference concerning treatment of the person or animal for whom the prescription was written
– Engaging in any act that requires the exercise of a registered pharmacist’s professional judgment.

Pharmacist Salary and Wage Review

Pharmacist's wage and salaryHere at HCC we see both sides of the common wage and salary issues facing the pharmacy profession today. As in any other profession and vocation, an individual wants to be paid as much as possible for what they do, yet employers need to control salaries and costs in an attempt to maximize return on investment and profits. We sometimes find that attempting to put an hourly wage number on “what a Pharmacist’s hourly worth is” is as complicated as the chemistry classes we all had to take and study so hard to pass in school. In studying the wage releases from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics for 2019, we once again find as expected that variables such as geography, population density, type of pharmacy job, years of experience, etc. make the task of salary comparison an almost impossible job to complete.

What Does the 2019 Bureau of Labor Statistics Reveal About Pharmacist’s Wage & Salary?

There are some interesting numbers that do stand out when reviewing the US Labor Bureau 2019 statistics regarding pharmacist jobs (although as stated above, please note that the relevancy of such statistics is perhaps, at times, questionable).

The employment demand and need for pharmacists is, perhaps, no longer on the rise. Last year saw an increase of a little under 1% in the number of jobs available and pharmacists employed nationwide. The Labor Bureau still rated pharmacy as one of the top jobs to work in, however in the 2019 report they projected that this rise in pharmacist jobs and pharmacist demand will not continue to rise over the next several years.

The median hourly wage for a pharmacist across the nation rose marginally to around $61.57 per hour (the wage at which half of the employed pharmacists earned more than that amount and half earned less). This was an increase of a mere 0.2% and it must be noted that the hourly wage ranged anywhere from just under $41/hour to just over $78/hour depending, as noted above, on too many variables to draw conclusions about. One other statistic that proved interesting enough to note was that women now comprise over 60% of all practicing pharmacists in the United States. Interestingly, it was also noted that while accounting for over half of the pharmacist workforce, women still face the challenge that male pharmacists “hold a disproportionate number of senior leadership levels” in our profession.

We think that everyone would agree on the importance of salary in determining where an individual chooses to work and what competency level an employer can expect. Yet studies prove that salary is not always the number one determining factor in the decision of where a pharmacist chooses to work. If you are a pharmacist choosing where to find employment and what you should be paid, HCC can help you. If you are an employer looking for the right candidate and trying to determine what salary to offer, once again HCC can help.
