  • PPD (TB skin test) or proof if you have had one in the last 12 months, or chest x ray if you cannot be tested. This will require you going back to the physician within 48-72 hours so they can check the site for reaction (if you get the PPD).

  • Tennis shoes/Nursing shoes are required for the class.


  • Hepatitis shot


If you have been a student at any of the KCTCS campuses (ACTC, Big Sandy CTC, Maysville CTC, etc.) in the past and have an outstanding balance from prior semesters there may be a financial hold on your account. If you have a financial hold on your account, you will be denied enrollment into this or any other class until that balance has been paid in full. If you have any questions or you are not sure and want to confirm that your account is in good standing, this can be done during your appointment.
