There are two entry-level degrees available for such students: a Bachelor of Science degree (BS) in pharmacy, or a PharmD. The BS takes five years to complete and will be obsolete after 2005. The PharmD is a six-year program that makes the pharmacists most knowledgeable on medications and their use. The PharmD degree was designed for students with more laboratory and research experience. Many pharmacists who hold their master’s degree or Ph.D. work in research for drug companies or teach at universities. Pharmacists who own and run their own pharmacy may also obtain their MBA. Pharmacy colleges require two years of general pre-pharmacy education. These classes include mathematics and natural sciences such as chemistry, biology, and physics. Another requirement is courses in humanities and social sciences. What are the working conditions of being a pharmacist? There are many different places where pharmacists are needed; community pharmacies, hospitals, long-term care facilities, pharmaceutical companies, mail service, managed care, and in government are a few. There are approximately 112000 community pharmacists, 66000 pharmacists in chain......

To use this template, select "File--Save As" and save the template under a new name. Then use type-over insertions to replace the header, information block, and title. Finally, replace the text in the body of the template by using type-over insertions, or delete the body text in blocks. (Hint: Leave the sample block quotation in place to preserve its paragraph indentation as a model. Use type-over insertions in the bibliography to preserve the hanging indentations.) Here, then, is a sample block quotation: A quotation that occupies more than four typed lines should be indented five spaces from the left margin. In a student paper, a block quotation may be single or double spaced, without quotation marks at the beginning and end of the quoted material. Its right margin should be set at 1". Its parenthetical citation should be placed after the block's last item of punctuation. (Smith, 1988, p. 16) I suggest printing this template to make sure that your printer is properly configured to produce an APA page. It should produce no more than 27 lines per page, plus the header. The text block should be surrounded by 1" margins on all four sides.

Using the information in the full case opinion, you will be required to do the following a. (up to 25 points) Submit a paper of 500 to 750 words on the case. The paper must treat the following areas: - what are the facts of the case? - what is the law that applies in this situation? - what is the issue? That is a statement of how the law applies to the facts of the case - discussion - make an argument that supports a particular outcome in the case.

Running on Empty: The Effects of Food Deprivation on Concentration and Perseverance Thomas Delancy and Adam Solberg Dordt College 34 Sample Abstract Running on Empty Abstract This study examined the effects of short-term food deprivation on two The abstract summarizes the problem, participants, hypotheses, methods used, results, and conclusions. 2 cognitive abilities—concentration and perseverance. Undergraduate students (N-51) were tested on both a concentration task and a perseverance task after one of three levels of food deprivation: none, 12 hours, or 24 hours. We predicted that food deprivation would impair both concentration scores and perseverance time. Food deprivation had no significant effect on concentration scores, which is consistent with recent research on the effects of food deprivation (Green et al., 1995; Green et al., 1997). However, participants in the 12-hour deprivation group spent significantly less time on the perseverance task than those in both the control and 24-hour deprivation groups, suggesting that short-term deprivation may affect some aspects of cognition and not others.
