    Online Nurse Practitioner Program

    Hello all! I'm looking for some input on online NP (MSN) programs. What programs do you recommend or not recommend? Pros/cons? Do all of them cost roughly $800 a credit hour? Thanks for your input!

    Varicella titer

    Thank you for your reply. I've already submitted an appeal to the Dean of our program. I also had my pharmacist write a letter as to why I cannot currently have the Varicella vaccine and when I can get the first and second dose. I'm still thinking about repeating my titer since I was so close to having the positive antibody.

    Varicella titer

    I'm hoping to get some insight on the Varicella titer, I am starting a BSN program in August. I had my Varicella titer and it came back equivocal but the ranges are different than I've seen on other postings. I've seen a lot of ranges from 0.9-1.11. Mine is scaled from 135-165, 165 and above is said to be a postive titer, my results were a 160.7. And the equivocal range is huge 135-164.99. I'm wondering if I should retest the titer at another lab. Am I asking for the wrong titer? I ordered it from labreqs.com and had the test done at Quest Diagnostics, the results show Zoster virus antibody (IGG). I'm kind of in a predicament, I already have proof of 2 MMR vaccines but my last one was in 1999, so instead of getting the expensive MMR titer I had a booster MMR. I wasn't aware that if you don't get both the Varicella and MMR live vaccines at the same time that you then have to wait 1 month before receiving the other live vaccine. Since my Varicella titer came back equivocal I now have to get 2 Varicella vaccines and I'm unable to get the first for 4 weeks now because of the MMR vaccine. I'm supposed to have both Varicella vaccines or a positive titer before August 1st.
