Asher College of Sacramento Now Offers AAS Degree in Pharmacy Technology

Asher College of Sacramento is announcing a new program offering an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Pharmacy Technology.

Sacramento, CA - January 15, 2020 —

Asher College of Sacramento will now offer an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Pharmacy Technology. Committed to training high-quality job candidates for in-demand careers, Asher College’s new AAS program furthers this commitment by extending its existing program offerings in the field of healthcare services.

Pharmacy technicians work hand-in-hand with pharmacists and are essential to the success of pharmacies. These important healthcare professionals are responsible for helping licensed pharmacists fill and dispense medications prescribed to patients by medical professionals. Responsibilities of pharmacy technicians include establishing and maintaining patient record files, submitting insurance claim forms, and managing prescription and over-the-counter medication inventories. Pharmacy technicians often interact directly with patients and must understand and abide by HIPAA, Federal and State regulations concerning confidentiality.

The AAS Pharmacy Technology program at Asher College is a Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB)-recognized education/training program. Students learn essential skills to be employable in entry-level positions, including how to fill prescriptions under the direct supervision of a pharmacist, utilize relevant software applications, recognize the classifications of drugs and scheduled drugs, understand brand, generic, and OTC (over the counter) medications, adhere to HIPAA privacy regulations, and comprehend and perform insurance procedures. Asher’s pharmacy technology program is an Associate of Applied Science degree program, so there are also general education requirements, which include American Government, Business Math, and Business Communication. Students can complete the certification portion of the AAS program in as little as 45 weeks, allowing them to pursue their Pharmacy Technician certification from the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB), apply for state licensure with the California Board of Pharmacy and begin working in their field while finishing up the additional courses for the degree.

Asher College’s mission is to prepare students for new careers through quality, market-driven career education. Asher also offers Associate of Applied Science degrees and certificate programs for careers in information technology, administrative health services, and business administration and has additional locations in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Dallas, Texas. Asher is monitored on graduation and placement rates to maintain accreditation through the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (ACCET); this accreditation shows that the school and its program meet national standards.

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Jan 18, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Jan 18, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers.

A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...
