I attend Boone Career and Technical Center, with a concentration in pharmacy. Pharmacy is a branch of medicine dealing with drugs and medications and their effects on the human body. My program at BCTC gave me the opportunity to participate in a clinical internship, which exposes me to many more opportunities and valuable information. I am currently enrolled in the PassAssured pharmacy technician program, and before I could start my internship I had to educate myself of the basic pharmacy operations. The classroom alone provides a plethora of knowledge, but when combined with participation in a clinical internship, the learning never ends.

I attained my goal of finishing the internship with more than the required hours and I will forever consider it one of my major accomplishments in life, which is a confidence booster. I am extremely satisfied with the outcome and everything that I have gained both intellectually and socially. Prior to starting my clinicals, I was nervous, skeptical, and second-guessing myself, however I am happy that I actually decided on participating. This experience has opened my eyes to the real world and what I have coming my way and I can now say that I am ready.
