Higher Education Website Finds U.S. Schools with Best Occupational Therapy Programs

The Community for Accredited Online Schools (, an online leader in higher education information, has released its list of the Best Pharmacy Technician Programs in the nation for 2016-2017. Data from both on-campus and online programs was compiled to determine top programs across the U.S., with Pensacola State College, Vincennes University, North Seattle College, Baker College and Seminole State College of Florida scoring in the top five for four-year schools and Arkansas State University Beebe, Eastern New Mexico University Roswell Campus, Central Louisiana Technical Community College, Cape Fear Community College and Eastern Arizona College scoring in the top five for two-year schools.

“A majority of jobs in the U.S., including pharmacy technician positions, do not require a Bachelor’s degree,” said Doug Jones, CEO and Founder of the Community for Accredited Online Schools. “This list focuses on ranking the schools that provide top-quality pharmacological training that prepares students to make a successful, efficient transition from the classroom into the workplace.”

Whether offering on-campus or online programs, schools are required to meet specific standards to land a spot on the Best Pharmacy Technician Programs list. Each institution must be an accredited two- or four-year public or private not-for-profit college or university. Each must also offer career placement services for students after they graduate. A dozen other data points were compared to determine where each school scored in the ranking, including financial aid information and tuition rates.
