What is it really like to be a pharmacist? Is it boring? Do you feel like you're doing something rewarding? Is it worth the money?

A lot of people have told me to go into pharmacy, but I'm worried about feeling like it's a non-rewarding job, as well as messing up someone's prescription and potentially bringing them harm. - I'm a bit of a mess in science (chemistry and biology) lab classes. #medical #biology #chemistry...

is taking the fast track pharmacy program in college doing to further me in my field or put me behind?

I have decided to becom a pharmacist, but the fast track does not award me with a degree. Instead, I will compete the program in six years instead of 8 and end with a phd in pharmacy. Will not having a bachelors limit me? #college-major...
