nsu Doctor of Pharmacy Entry level program logo

Helping People Live Healthier, Better Lives

The pharmacy professional provides extensive service to patients and the community. Filling prescriptions and recommending over-the-counter medication are only two aspects in the daily life of a pharmacist. Patients seek advice when they detect a medical problem. The pharmacist can assess a patient’s ability to care for himself or herself or determine if the patient should be referred to a different health care provider. Most importantly, pharmacists monitor the outcome of the use of medication—improvement in patient health or the detection of side effects and drug interactions. Patients interact with pharmacists in a variety of health care settings—not limited to hospitals, community pharmacies, and physician offices.

The Educational Experience Pharmacy students become experts in the disease process, medication selection, and dose adjustment in compromised patients. The College of Pharmacy emphasizes applying knowledge and skills to assess and monitor the treatment of disease. Student-learning activities are online, in the classroom, in simulation labs, and in real-life practice settings. Faculty members and preceptors educate students to communicate with and optimize care for, diverse patient populations and disease states.

The NSU Experience All students are involved in leadership development, student organizations, and community engagement—such as immunization and health care screenings. Students participate in fund-raising activities for patient groups or join mentoring services on campus. In addition, student pharmacists represent the university at professional meetings and participate in a special legislative day where they meet with state politicians to advocate for the profession. Faculty members are experts in their field and provide opportunities for students to be involved in research and publications. Career planning is essential for the NSU College of Pharmacy students. They gain knowledge from faculty and clinical affiliates as they learn about, and prepare for, careers after graduation. Faculty members don’t just teach, they mentor students in their growth and guide them to rewarding career paths. NSU College of Pharmacy provides a dynamic, diverse learning environment where students from around the world come to receive a world-class education, develop lifelong learning skills, and become leaders in their field.
