    I know you definitely need it by your first clinical day but try to get it before orientation. I'd recommend getting in the habit of doing things you know you need done ASAP because you'll never know what comes up later. So the physicals, titers, CPR card, etc I'd recommend having by the first day of class. But they'll let you know all of the due dates at orientation and they'll give you all the forms you need.
    Forgive my ignorance, what are titers

    Testing vaccine titers is done through a blood test that can identify the presence of antibodies induced by vaccinations. If the levels are satisfactory, the person is considered to have "protective antibody" and is considered to be "sufficiently immune" to the disease. You can argue that no further vaccination is necessary at this time. The tests can be ordered for both children and adults and the "protective levels" are the same in all age groups.
    Basically they check your blood to see if antibodies from previous vaccinations are still in your system. They'll let you know which specific titers you need when you get your paper work.

    Titers are drawn to see if you are immune to measles mumps rubella, hepatitis c, basically the shots you got as a child. If your not immune then they give you booster shots!
