Very difficult, you need a medical exemption.  Possibly easier in a state where they are more flexible and allow personal exemptions.  Maybe could do all your clinicals at the hospital you work at or private offices that don’t require it.   Or do clinicals not in flu season but your school would still have to agree to let you in the program.

They do use aborted baby fetuses...

others are also used including: Vero, Human diploid cell lines WI-38 and MRC 5, PerC6 and PMK cells

Stanley Plotkin was instrumental in developing the rubella vaccine. Thats like one vaccine.

The flu shot is literally a life saver. I always get the flu shot. Its not just for you, its for others who are compromised.

I honestly don't get it because they use derivatives of aborted baby fetuses to culture the vaccine. Look up Dr. Stanley Plotkins deposition last year.  

Just when I thought this thread couldn't get anymore amusing.....

She dipped out though. She couldn't handle the science. It is terrifying that there are nurses like her working in intensive care. Imagine the beliefs on standard precautions and whatnot. Yikes. 

BananaNutJob is more like it.

Yeah. I've noticed the OP hasn't been around much since throwing the proverbial turd in the punchbowl. There are, however, a few outliers who go along with the same kind of thinking, which is sad since they don't care enough about protecting their patients to get the necessary vaccinations. They can quote sources from every so-called "health" publication they want, but so much of that information is bogus and I'd like to think the nurse taking care of me relies on science and not some BS put out by the likes of Jenny McCarthy.

Next time I'll talk about how I REALLY feel about this.

Just for further fun: 

Heard yesterday in ER:

Aluminium which is in vaccines, including flu, is a foreign substance. As such, it is picked up by macrophages and they carry it in every corner of the body including brain. Autism is caused by pathology of left brain hemisphere (speech) and Asperger caused by pathology of the right hemisphere (emotions). Autism can be very severe but patients with Asperger are more frequently grow up independent. Therefore, if you really want flu shot for your kid, do it on the right side. Better yet, avoid it altogether.

The author of that brilliant theory was a guy who came in ER together with half of a dozen disabled teens, all sick with flu, from a residential part of private mental health facility where these kids live and receive care. He is a licenced phychologist and a PhD, license was checked by curious nurses who did not believe their own eyes when they saw his name connected with "license active".

Career change.  It should not be possible to get a masters or doctorate in nursing and not believe in the flu shot.  

Incorrect. I personally do not believe in the flu shot. I have my DNP and FNP. When patients ask whether they should get it or not I tell them the information from the CDC and that it is recommended, benefits of it, etc. I seperate my personal life from my professional life. Simple.

In my humble opinion finding another career may be the best option. Most places are doing away with the exemption and mask options and willing to terminate for noncompliance. Do what's on your heart.  Not believing in the flu shot does not make you a poor nurse and not every nurse who believes is a great nurse! 

One of the most eloquent and educated responses on this thread. So many responses are attacking her and just plain ruin. Nurses can be such catty and vile people!

You clearly aren't separating your personal life from your professional life since in your professional life you are interacting with patients without having been vaccinated, which is due to a "personal" belief rather than proper professional practice.
