Procedure if you have had a BCG:
(If you don't know what BCG is, chances are you haven't had it!)

  1. You must obtain a baseline PPD (TB) skin-test: intracutaneous (MANTOUX), NOT tine.

  2. If this initial test shows a positive reading, then you must get a chest X-Ray.
    If the test is negative, you do not require a chest X-Ray, but you must repeat the PPD test each year.

  3. Your doctor must indicate on your Report of Medical History whether or not you show
    any symptoms suggestive of active TB.

  4. Submit proof of the initial TB skin-test and X-Ray when you submit your Medical History Report
    (before you first start your first semester in the Nursing program).
IF your baseline PPD was positive, each following year in the program you must do one of two things:
  1. Be examined by your doctor/nurse who must report whether you show any symptoms suggestive of active TB. Bring this document with you to have completed.
    Submit a copy of this examination, signed and dated;

  2. OR
  3. Get another chest X-Ray. Submit a copy of the X-Ray report.

  4. Remember this is due by July 31st each year (along with a copy of your BLS certification card!)

    These Guidelines were obtained from the Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Guideline for Infection Control in Health Care Personnel.
