Are you contemplating buying your own pharmacy? Pharmacy ownership is not for the faint of heart. It does require an all out commitment to your business. Rewards can include professional recognition, respect of the community, financial benefits, the flexibility of ownership, and so much more! You will be able to feel part of a community and to establish a practice of which you can be proud. The downsides include an absolute commitment to the business that can sometimes feel inescapable, financial liability, emotional commitment that can be stressful, and more.
The National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) is a great resource for those interested in considering ownership. They offer a special ownership course that helps to prepare aspiring owners for ownership. Visit ncpanet.org for more information.
From time to time, PPA conducts programs for potential owners. if you are interested in being on a list to receive more information about any programming related to ownership whenever it is available, please let PPA know.
