helllo i will soon be entering the rt program and unfortunately have made a terrible decision on my part. I gave in to smoking marijuana a week before school starts. It was obviously bad judgement on my part and i gave in due to the stresses of working three jobs.......nevertheless my question is when exactly does sjvc drug test? immediately? or later on into the semester? I wouldnt know what to do with my life should i find out im completely doomed

I graduated from SJVC earlier this year, I was never once drug tested. Some of my classmates were, but it was typically either a requirement of the hospital where they were doing there clinical rotations or the school had them do it, but in those cases it was always 2nd term or later.

Don't worry about it. Just don't smoke again after this and you will be fine.

SJVC is ridiculously stressful however, for reasons you will soon discover. I would instead suggest developing a taste for good strong liquor if/when you feel stressed out again.

Just water load and load up on creatinine monohydrate. You'll pass.

Hi! I'm starting the program tomorrow and I want to know, do they only test for marijuana? Or do they test for other drugs too? Also, do they do urine tests or hair tests? Thanks in advance. :)

I would suggest rolling a really fat one and smoke it, as to come to terms with the fact that your biggest mistake was deciding to enter this career field. And no; I'm not joking at all. However, if you're still bent on medical, then you should seriously consider nursing. I graduated from Crafton -- a self serving, Socialist institution that does whatever it can to give 60% of their starting class the axe by the end of the first year; as to maintain accreditation through passing and employment rates. And if they can't fail you, then they'll use their cronies in the clinic to accomplish the task. But that's just beginning.

The current failure rate for passing the worst exam in existence (RRT) is 50%. NOTHING HAS A FAILURE RATE LIKE THIS. The reason, of course, is that the field is completely saturated, the NBRC unregulated, and it's all about money. Soooo, since nursing has a waiting list, which will give you enough time to get the THC out of your system, then no worries; less you don't listen to my advice...
