Pharmacy Technician Day
National Pharmacy Technician Day
Pharmacy Technician Day was first endorsed by the Pharmacy Technician Educators Association, American Association of Pharmacy Technicians, Inc. – AAPT and Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) in 2015. Each year, the third Tuesday in October is proclaimed by CAPT as National Pharmacy Technician Day.
CAPT is happy to promote and participate in National Pharmacy Technician Day. CAPT creates resources to acknowledge the work of pharmacy technicians and support staff in the field. CAPT also has resources outlining the scope of practice for pharmacy technicians. These can be used in educating the public and other healthcare professionals about the value of pharmacy technicians and their skills and knowledge.
