The Pharmacy Job Crisis is Here. Are You Freaked Out?
Pharmacy was a great career to find any job twenty years ago. Things have wildly changed since
Walgreens recently announced plans to close 200 stores.
More than a fifth of the nation’s rural hospitals are on the brink of insolvency.
Nearly 14,000 pharmacy graduates entered the market last year, anxious for work. However,
the US Bureau of Labor predicts that only 17,000 new pharmacy jobs will be produced by 2026.
Pharmacists are under immense pressure within this cantankerous environment. Between
managing their careers and trying to pay bills, they’re struggling to overcome diminished job
security. Cuts have been made to full and part-time positions. These adjustments have had
unsatisfactory changes in pay as well.
Salaries, benefits, career satisfaction, and job security are elusive these days. Nobody knows
how to survive uncertainty. Can you relate?
If sharp industry changes concern you, and you are worried that your career may spiral out of
control, I understand. Frustration over lack of opportunities for pharmacists – or at least, the
perception that there weren't any opportunities – is precisely why I created the Happy PharmD
