Hello out there to all the SheltonState nursing students who just got accepted to start SSCC nursing program Fall 2015 whether it is The LPN or RN congratulations!! I know personslly it is a huge accomplishment and is the start if my life long dreams coming true :nurse:!!! But this is not what this thread is about...lol..I am so excited to embark on this journey with you guys however I have a few questions about shots, nursing uuniforms, cpr classes etc, so I figured we could share what we do know about pre-orientation requirements on this thread to help out so we all can be best prepared for orientation as we can because my best friend who is in the program already keeps reminding me that " First Impressions are EVERYTHING"!! So let's get off to a great start :yes:!!

Hello classmate not too sure about the test but I would assume that if you do the test once it is to be read that you should only have to pay once.. maybe medcenter could do that??

Okay so I went to medcenter yesterday and got my titers checked and my TB test and just paid a $30 copay. Not sure if that is because I have insurance or if they're just going to charge me when I go to get it checked tomorrow but I can let you know! I have had tons of TB tests in FL and never got charged though.

Think you are confusing the point a little.. when you pay for a TB skin test the cost does include getting it read 48-72 hours after administration.

Since your school requires a 2 step TB skin test.. then you will be required to get a 2nd test 1-2 weeks after getting your 1st results read.. and yes there will be a charge for this test as well at that time.
