Nebraska Pharmacy Technician Training Programs

Nebraska pharmacy technician training programs

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services has one requirement for anyone interested in working as a pharmacy technician in the state. While there is only one requirement—registration, there are several requirements to obtain registration. According to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services:

Legislation became effective September 1, 2007, (LB 236) to require registration of all pharmacy technicians employed by a facility licensed under the Health Care Facility Licensure Act. Pharmacy technicians must apply for registration within 30 days after being hired by a pharmacy or facility. 

To register as a pharmacy technician, an individual must:

-Be at least 18 years of age;

-Be a high school graduate or be officially recognized by the State Department of Education as possessing the equivalent degree of education;

-Have never been convicted of any non-alcohol, drug-related misdemeanor or felony;

-File an application with the Department; and

-Pay the applicable fee           

It is important to note that the Department of Health and Human Services requirements are the minimum requirements for pharmacy technicians to become “legally” employed in the state. Employers may require more. In fact, many of the top companies prefer to hire applicants with a degree, experience, and national certification. Fortunately, a number of Nebraska schools can help you meet these requirements. Some of the best Nebraska schools for pharmacy technicians are listed below.
