The Grass Isn't Always Greener

I've been a pharmacist for many years now.

I personally know that there are positive and negative aspects to each area of the profession, whether retail, long-term care, hospital, or any other place that pharmacists are trying to escape. But, when it comes to decision-making in the workplace, no practice area is much better than the next.

So, let me tell you that that the grass isn't greener wherever you decide to go.

It doesn't matter where you decide to practice pharmacy, in every aspect of pharmacy, you aren't in control of your own professional destiny. Someone else will always be dictating your actions, and many times it won't be another pharmacist.

Wake up! Don't try to fool yourself. You can run all you want, but you can't escape it. Whether you practice retail pharmacy in Ohio, or hospital pharmacy in Alabama, there will always be someone else writing the rules and telling you how to practice your profession.
