What do I do when I terminate with one pharmacy and beging working at another pharmacy? How do I get registered with the Board with my new pharmacy?
That’s a great question, Amanda.
The topic of the process of changing jobs has not been discussed much on pharmacy-tech-resources.com. While I have written a number of pages on resumes, sample resumes, job interviewing, and cover letters, the questions you’ve asked have not been addressed here. I’m glad you asked it, and I hope my answer helps you.
There are many reasons for a person to change jobs. Better pay, better benefits, more desirable work hours, relocating, better coworkers; these are just a few reasons. Often the process can be a bit stressful. Or a lot stressful. Other times it is a natural progression from one to the next. Hopefully the transition for you is smooth and you are able to get brought up to speed quickly and you can use skills learned at your last job at your new one.
As long as your former job and your new job are still in the same state, there is no need to re-register with your State Board of Pharmacy.
However, it is important to update the BOP with your change in employment. You should be able to find a Change of Employment form (maybe even one you can submit online) on your state BOP’s website. It is also important that you take your license with you to your new job. It would have been posted in a visible place
