Hello Everyoone !

Let me explain my situation first.

NOw as a back up plan I am taking PTCE in Sept. I have a green card.
Now my question is ..
1. as soon as I pass the PTCE will I be abl;e to work in any pharmacy as technitian?
2. What book should I refer for this exam..as in FPGEE I have studied everything in detail..would that reading help me here?
Thanks in advance..

Not necessarily. You still need to apply to the state board of pharmacy of whatever state you are living in to become registered, licensed, listed - whatever the lingo each state has for knowing who you are & what qualifications you say you've got.

This process usually involves fingerprinting and sending in money then waiting for the paperwork to be processed. It can take a few days, weeks or in the case of my state, CA - months....depending on how backed up things are.
