TB Skin Test Training Program

VUMC nurses can undergo training to become certified to place TB Skin Tests for patients and for their peers. The TB Skin Test training program consists of three steps:

  1. Complete the VUMC TB Skin Test Bundle online
    • Login to the Learning Exchange
    • Search for "TB Skin Test" (without the quotes)
    • Look for "Tuberculin (TB) Skin testing for Patients and Health Care Personnel" and click on the "Enroll" or "Launch" button to get into the module
  2. Register and attend "TB Skin Test competency check–off" session once you complete the TB Skin Test Bundle course
  3. Provide your unit educator a copy of check-off completion certification

You will be certified to administer TB Skin Tests to both staff and patients once you complete the above steps.
