I found out today that I am on the alt list for my nursing school
. So I have to go through the entire physical, TB tests, etc.
Please someone correct me now if I am wrong....
I have heard people are TB carriers and don't even know it. It seems like I read somewhere on these boards that a student tested positive for TB (and she wasn't even sick), and she was worried that she might not get to start her clinicals until she completed 6 weeks of antibiotics to get a neg TB test.
I have never taken a TB test...I just want to make sure to allow plenty of time in case in comes up positive, that I have time to correct the situation before school starts this Fall.
