It's the skin test for tuberculosis that we all need for the clinical portion of the nursing program. For NVCC it's a two step meaning we need it done twice, I guess the first can be a false negative.

Hey, I have seen people saying there was a June 1 deadline for documents, but I am only seeing that date as a dealine for registering for classes..Am i missing something?

I'm seeing this on my NCC bannerweb (docs for accepted students):

College email. Your deadline for registering is June 1, 2017.

CPR for adult, child, infant and AED by July 1, 2017. (Heart Saver is Not Acceptable)

Cross and must remain current throughout the program. More information about course

offerings is included in these documents.

to attend clinical. Information about the requirements and the forms you will use are enclosed

with these documents. All Health Assessment Forms must be completed by your Healthcare

Makes me feel better that I am not the only one. I had the immunizations as a baby but my titers show that I am not immune. I took my booster last saturday. My doctor will have me do another titer in a month and if im still not immune than I will repeat the series! Castlebranch says they only need proof that you have started a new process in order to start.

Castle Beanch has accepted everything from me. I'm just waiting on the results of my titers, which were drawn yesterday. I didn't eat the Hep B series u til a I was in high school and I never had a varicella vaccine (just the disease.. twice) so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I don't have to do another series of vaccines.

About how long did it take for you guys to get your results?

Thanks to everyone who chimed in saying that schools have different due dates. I would be scrambling too! My insurance just kicked in, so I would be paying for everything OOP. Also I have read that some insurance carriers do not cover the cost of titers, has that happened to anybody? I am NOT interested with being re-vaxxed for something I am already immune to, but it found it ridiculous that the immunization would be covered and not the titer for some individuals. Will be calling insurance before I make the appt.

Sorry for those of you having issues with titers etc...I am the queen of "if it can go wrong, it will" so I am CERTAIN I will be searching for docs, titer issues etc.

yes start early on all your stuff. I am scrambling lol and no insurance covered my titers with no problems. I had quite a few bumps my cpr for being a cna at a hospital wasnt good enough it got denied. I just learned I need to have my tb done twice in two steps so placed then read and then placed and then read again...... I also had to go somewhere else for Dtap because my doctor didnt offer it. so give yourself time for it to get denied and be able to correct it.
