Not sure if this is where I post this but hopefully someone can help
I am hopefully going to start a CNA class in about 2 months. . .I know I have to take a TB test but Im a little nervous it might come up positive bc my ex had it but it was inactive. If I do test positive I know i have to do a chest X ray and if it comes up negative I will be good to go for the CNA class if it comes back positive then what? I just take meds for 6-9 months? and then go for my CNA again when its gone.
Also if I have it and its inactive does that mean the x ray will come back positive or neg for it? Im a little confused and nervous about this can someone please explain Im so nervous bc I have always wanted to become a nurse and If I can't Im gonna be so broken
If I test postive for the PPD and my chest ex ray comes back negative does that mean I have it and its just inactive or does that mean that the PPD was wrong and I dont have it at all? Also wouldn't you know if you have active TB?
