Quick question, I just offered this job and they are making me take a physical. What exactly does this Pre-Employment Physical Exam entail? I just think it's stupid and intrusive.
As most have said previously the "physical" usually consists of health hx, vaccination verification, tb test, drug screen and N95 fitting. I have been through several and they are all some variation of the above. If you do not have proof of vaccinations they will draw titers. Interesting enough now they are including flu vaccine on start of job.
Being a nurse you know that they need to make sure that the public is safe from us carrying disease and they also wish to protect us from the public. Explain your fear to the person performing the tests they may be able to limit the amount of invasive procedures. i.e. flu vaccine can be given intranasally.
