TN Visa as a Pharmacist

What is a Pharmacist for TN visa purposes?

In general, a Pharmacist dispenses drugs or medicines that doctors and health practitioners prescribe and possesses the medical knowledge necessary to inform patients about the dosages, benefits, hazards, and any side effects of the dispensed drugs. Pharmacists usually keep computerized records of patients’ medical profiles and drug usage to ensure that they won’t combine drugs that adversely interact with one another, and that the doctor’s dosage instructions must be followed for safety. The US Department of Labor (DOL) provides a detailed breakdown of the Pharmacist profession through O*NET Online.
