    Question Need advice: CCS or Pharmacy technician

    AAPC: Back to School
    My name is Nancy. I got my CPC-A in December 2010. I'm currently a stay-at-home mom and I wonder what should I study more: CCS or Pharmacy technician? so that it would be a bit easier when I'm ready to go hunting for a job. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
