Posted by on .

I have to writeabout the work setting and work environment of a pharmacy technician...
I am allowed to copy and paste from a website as long as you reference it so I did... but all in all this is what I wrote.:

Work environment:
Pharmacy technicians work in clean, organized, well-lighted, and well-ventilated areas. Most of their workday is spent on their feet. They may be required to lift heavy boxes or to use stepladders to retrieve supplies from high shelves.

Work Setting:
Pharmacy technicians are employed in hospitals, home health care agencies, mail order pharmacies, retail pharmacies, pharmacies that supply medications for assisted care living and nursing home facilities, hospice pharmacies, HMO pharmacies, and nuclear pharmacies Technicians work the same hours that Pharmacists work. These may include evenings, nights, weekends, and holidays, particularly in facilities that are open 24 hours a day such as hospitals and some retail pharmacies. As their seniority increases, technicians often acquire increased control over the hours they work. There are many opportunities for part-time work in both retail and hospital settings.


Is this right...will I get full marks??

    You haven't referenced the parts you copied. In other words, you haven't given the source of your information.

  • Co-op - ,

    I already did... on my sheet this is just for you to check if it is rightt.

  • Co-op - ,

    Please check with your instructor to see if just listing the sources is enough. Most instructors and editors require you to give the source immediately before or after the quotation.

    Your content looks good.
