Try an acid fast stain. It's either nocardia or TB when the test is positive

Actually, Nocardia are partially acid fast.

Gram +ve bacilli + coccobacilli with branching filaments (fungus-like)
partially acid fast
Catalase+
Urease+

ID by morphology, confirm by molecular tests.

Tests that are listed here are for enterics…
