CustomRx Helps Graduate Learn and Offers Her a Job

Apr 22, 2013

Latisha Benson, a graduate of the Fort Wayne Campus, used her strong people skills and her new knowledge from the pharmacy technician program to find success through her externship at CustomRx Pharmacy, a compounding pharmacy that mixes the prescriptions in their lab as prescribed by a doctor.

As an extern, she was able to get hands-on experience in mixing and compounding medications. She also learned about the preparation of sterile products which is given top priority to assure the safety and therapeutic efficacy of the extemporaneously prepared products. Latisha made such a good impression as an extern at CustomRx that they offered a job.

“There is never a day that goes by that I do not learn a new medication mixture made specifically for a patient,” Latisha explained of her new career. “There is never a dull moment, nor does the learning ever stop.”

Latisha completed her education at the top of her class in November 2012. She credits her success to the instructors and the college’s pharmacy technician program.
