The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists Commission on
Credentialing voted this spring to extend accreditation of
Southeast Community College's
Pharmacy Technician program.
The extension of accreditation is for the remainder of the
program's current six-year cycle, which goes until 2015, or until
the ASHP Commission on Credentialing recommends further action.
SCC's Pharmacy Technician program is located on the Beatrice
Campus and online.
The Commission arrived at its decision based on a thorough
review of the progress report submitted by SCC. Continued
accreditation is granted subject to the provisions set forth in the
ASHP Regulations on Accreditation of Pharmacy Technician Training
The ASHP Board of Directors reviewed and accepted the Commission
on Credentialing actions in mid-April.
SCC's Pharmacy Technician program accepts face-to-face students
each Summer Quarter (July) and online students each Winter Quarter
(January). A Diploma is awarded at the successful conclusion of
four quarters, or one year, of study. Students are required to take
labs in person on the Beatrice Campus. All clinical education must
be taken at SCC-approved sites.
Elina Pierce is chair of the Pharmacy Technician program.
