If one or -more of -the -listed -immunizations are contraindicated, -documentation -must -be submitted clearly -identifying -the reason(s). Clinical -laboratory reports with facility stamp -and -medical -doctor's signature -are required. Tuberculosis Clearance -- -the CDC Guidelines for -Preventing -the Transmission of -Mycobacterium tuberculosis -in Health-Care -Settings are -intended -to protect the HCP -and patients. Two Options (consult -with -supervisor for -specific program requirements)

  • The TB screening -program consists -of two major -components: (1) -baseline -single -test -for -M. -tuberculosis -infection and (2) serial -testing/screening for -M. tuberculosis -infection. The HCP -must -have a -baseline single test followed by serial skin -testing once per year. If -the HCP has a baseline -positive result or has previously had a -positive -result, a -chest radiograph must be completed -to -exclude a -diagnosis of TBdisease. Thereafter, every year -the -HCP must receive a symptom screen.
  • The TB blood test (also -called interferon-gamma release -assays or IGRAs) -measures how -the -immune -system reacts to the -bacteria -that cause -TB. -An -IGRA measures -how strong a person's -immune system reacts to TB bacteria -by -testing the person's -blood in a -laboratory. IGRAs are -the -preferred -method -of TB -infection testing -for people who -have received -bacille Calmette-Gu--rin (BCG) as this -is a -vaccine for TB disease. There -is no problem with repeated IGRAs. Two -IGRAs are -approved by -the U.S. Food and Drug -Administration (FDA) and -are -available -in the United -States: (1) QuantiFERON --TB Gold -In-Tube -test (QFT-GIT) and (2) -T-SPOT -.TB -test (T-Spot). -Positive IGRA: -This -means -that -the HCP has been -infected with -TB -bacteria. -Additional tests are -needed -to -determine -if -the -HCP has -latent -TB -infection or TB disease. A health care -worker will -then provide treatment as needed. -Negative -IGRA: -This means -that the HCP's blood -did not -react to the test -and -that -latent -TB -infection or -TB -disease -is not -likely. KNOWLEDGE/EXPERIENCE: One year or -less experience -in teaching in a university or -college setting required as defined -by University's faculty -handbook. Working knowledge of Microsoft Office Suite -Products, especially Outlook, -Word, -PowerPoint and other -MS office products as needed. Working -with online learning -management -systems to further -engage -the student -learning process desirable. Knowledge of state, -federal and -local -laws/regulations relating to programs, governmental compliance and other -regulatory standards -such -as state -Board -of Nursing, -Commission -on Dental -Accreditation, state - Dental Hygiene -Committee, state -Dental -board, -Accreditation Council for -Education -in Nutrition -and -Dietetics (ACEND), -Western -Association of -Schools -and -Colleges (WASC) or other regulators and/or accreditation bodies.
