Pharmacist Shortage as Role Increases

Pharmacist Shortage as Role Increases

No longer simply counting pills behind the counter, pharmacists are on the frontlines counseling patients and evaluating medication plans.

With these expanding roles has come increased demand for pharmacists, leading to a shortage of pharmacists across the country. According to a recent report from Fox News, 80% of independent pharmacies report having trouble filling positions. To combat this problem, pharmacies are offering huge bonuses — as much as $50,000 — to recruit new pharmacists.

The Cedarville University School of Pharmacy is equipping students through pharmacy excellence and Christlike compassion to meet this increasing demand. Students learn from and are mentored by professors who are highly credentialed, experienced, and godly pharmacists.

If you want a rewarding career with ample job opportunities where you can make a real difference in people’s lives, consider pharmacy. And consider a Doctor of Pharmacy from Cedarville University.
