Kurt Clyne, M.S., Pharm.D., director of pharmacy services at Saint Elizabeth Regional Medical Center in Lincoln, said, “Since the SCC Pharmacy Technician program was implemented, we have instituted student rotations and subsequently hired graduates from every graduating class. The quality of the accredited program and the training to prepare them to work in a hospital pharmacy is outstanding! The newly hired SCC Pharmacy Tech graduate has consistently demonstrated a high level of knowledge, motivation and enthusiasm to the career they have chosen.”
