Can I work in the hosp. if i'm positive?
Jun 8, 2008
Just passed Nclex-RN and has been offered a job in PCU at a local hosp. Will they still hire me after the test comes back positive?

Hospitals all set their own rules on potential exposure to HIV in the workplace. Usually they do not restrict the activities of someone who's not doing invasive procedures. Ask for a copy of your hospital's own rules and restrictions regarding bloodborne pathogens.
