  1. I am an LVN with a quick question. Has anyone heard of a two-step TB test? What is this? Thank-you.

    It involves having two PPD's within a short time period, such as one week. It increases the accuracy of the test.

    two-step tb testing involves a person getting re-tested one week after the initial tuberculosis test. if both tb tests are negative, the person is unlikely to have tb. about.com
