Tuberculosis (TB) Status
Prior to placement, students are required to have a documented 2-step tuberculosis skin test done prior to start date. This involves the planting of a tuberculin skin test in the forearm, having it read by a licensed Healthcare Provider 2-3 days later and if negative, the process will be repeated in the other arm 1-3 weeks later.
The 2-step skin test identifies the truly positive skin test. It is essential to have accurate baseline information at the beginning of your placement as this is the comparison that is used in the event of an exposure.
