This is a night shift (roughly 630pm-7am) position with major focus on Nuclear and Long-Term Care pharmacy.  The first part of the shift would mainly be in Long-Term Care where the pharmacist would continue handling daily med orders and delivery runs.  Once the daily orders were done there would be miscellaneous roles to fill such as verifying prescriptions for the next day.  Technicians would be there to assist.  At the appropriate time they would transition to the Nuclear pharmacy and hit generators, make kits, perform qc, and draw doses.  A technician would be there to assist with qc, dose wrapping/shipping.  On top of handling Nuclear and Long-Term Care overnight, they would also be responsible for taking calls for those departments as well as for Hospice.  A variety of technicians would be working with the pharmacist, some specializing in Long-Term Care and others in Nuclear, in addition there is a 7on 7off technician that mimics the pharmacist shift.  This would be a good position for someone interested in nuclear and night shifts, but wanting other exposure as well.

This shift is 50% nuke, 40% long-term care, 10% compounding/hospice.  This position would need to be an Authorized User or at least have taken all of the nuclear coursework, we could do the hands-on training here.
