Interesting...so if I were to in fact go to nursing school at some point, would this allow me to participate in clinicals without the hep B vax? I was told that my school wouldn't care if I used a religious exemption, but most hospitals wouldn't let me participate due to not having the vax.

Theyalways say that, though, don't they? REmember when you thought you needed to be vaxed to go to school?

Yes, but I recall some posts here where at least one nursing student quit school because of it...maybe she didn't have this particular OSHA information to show them? I don't know what her exact circumstances were.

Here's the whole standard. http://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owad...RDS&p_id=10051

Students are not employees & the standard says it applies to employees.
