Pharmacy Technician Student is Hired After Externship

Mar 31, 2014

Sheri Ingram, a student in the pharmacy technician and medical assisting programs at the Richmond Campus, recently completed her pharmacy externship at Madison Drug and was offered a position with them.  She also passed the certification exam in February and can now proudly add CPHT to her job title.

Sheri credits her success to Paula Beth Ciolek, director of health education and Glen Jones, pharmacy tech instructor. “They gave me the confidence I needed to take the pharmacy technician certification exam,” said Sheri.  “I don’t think I could have done it without their encouragement.”

When Sheri started school she was a stay-at-home mom who was looking to learn skills that would provide her family with a better life.  She also wanted to show her children the importance of an education.

Sheri found out about National from a friend, Jason Shackleford, who is currently enrolled in the pharmacy technician diploma program.  She said that she loves the small class size and the one-on-one instruction that you get at the school.  After completing her medical assisting program, she hopes to find a job working in a doctor’s office, but for now she is enjoying helping people at Madison Drug.

Pharmacy technician and medical assisting student, Sheri Ingram, has been hired after completing an externship at Madison Drug in Richmond, KY.
