Pharmacy Labs for Technicians

Pharmacy Labs for Technicians

Pharmacy Labs for Technicians teaches students detailed lab procedures and skills using hands-on practice. Included are 32 labs that teach administrative and clinical procedures such as using pharmacy reference texts, filling prescriptions, compounding medications, and preparing sterile intravenous products.

  • Essential background and context with each lab reinforces learning by helping students understand the reasons for protocols.
  • CD packaged with text offers realistic practice using a simulation of the NRx pharmacy management software by QS/1 – the most widely used product on the market.

The Labels Do Not Print Correctly

The student or instructor cannot significantly alter the printing format of the single-sheet labels that are produced by the NRx simulation CD. The only way to adjust for different label types is to move the margins slightly via the printer command function. However, that action does not significantly alter the label itself. To achieve the goal of completing “the total fill process” per ASHP accreditation, students might find it simplest to print out the single-sheet labels on a full-sheet-sized sticky label. The student would then cut out the label area needed and apply it to the vial or bottle that was filled.

*Note: We do not recommend using custom labels with the NRx Simulation.
