TB Skin Test Training Program

VUMC nurses can undergo training to become certified to place TB Skin Tests 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. Contact OHC to schedule 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
  4. If needing to complete TB Skin Test check-off for patients, please reach out to your manager or unit nurse educator. 

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