Has anyone had trouble paying for their re-certification? I have tried several times and I keep getting messages that my transaction was not processed. This is with my debit card and bank account. I have logged out and logged back in. The PTCB conveniently doesn't have a phone number posted under their "contact us" page (that I could see). To say that I am extremely frustrated would be an understatement. Any help would be appreciated, especially from the PTCB.... ... See MoreSee Less

I've been a licensed certified hospital technician since 1990 I've worked with a few great well educated pharmacists over the years and have gleaned a lot from them because they took great pride in sharing their knowledge and making pharmacy really fun, interesting and gratifying - always a chance to learn something new. And really part of patient care These days I feel unchallenged and mind numbing bored as well as strangled by too many rules and regulations that have taken all the adventure out of pharmacy I'm glad that there's a constant watch, insuring patient care is number one in everyone's mind but when rules and watching the budget becomes more important than patient care it's frustrating We techs spend the day filling pyxis machines which has no more satisfaction than refilling a coke machine or reward because it's only noticed if it runs out of an item or fails IV making is boring and burdened with too much paperwork, besides RTU premixes for nearly everything eliminates the need to compound Searching for answers or even some encouragement No negative responses necessary ...
