I worked with different pharmacists in different settings. They all were different. Some, i will always respect them. Some, they were not mature enough to hold the integrity of the profession. I have taken this profession as an opportunity of self-growth and satisfaction to help other whenever the opportunity comes. But, i cannot ignore the fact that money has been the huge issue too. I pay around 140,000 dollars for the PharmD program. It makes sense to me that i am not paying that huge sum of money just to do social work and helping the people. i have to get rid of my debt too and earn the respective life for myself and my family. Besides that, by my experience of holding different jobs in my lifetime, i would say the job of the pharmacist was the easiest one. It is my personal opinion on the basis of my expereinces. I do not say that there would not be bad days as a pharmacist, there would be bad days in any kind of job.
In summary, i want to become a pharmacist because i like it and there is good money. I would probably not hold any job that i do not like or i would not make enough money.
