Student Health Services & Comprehensive Health Resource Center
A certified registered nurse is on duty from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday during the academic year to treat minor illness or injury and to provide emergency care and physician and community resource referral.
The staff can provide over-the-counter medications and first aid for students who get sick or are injured. Campus Police should be contacted in the event of a medical emergency or if an ambulance is needed. The Campus Police will then contact the student health staff.
The nurse conducts eye and hearing exams by appointment, and weight checks, blood pressure, and blood glucose screenings if warranted, on a walk-in basis. HIV testing is provided free two-three times annually. The Student Health Office provides pamphlets, brochures, and fliers that contain current health information. Videos and books are available for checkout. In addition, Student Health sponsors a variety of health-related seminars throughout the year that are open to students, staff, and the community.
Students who know they will be absent from class(es) two or more consecutive days due to illness or a death in the family can phone the Health Center, and the staff will notify instructors. In addition, the nurse is available as a non-judgmental listener and resource person.
The Student Health Office is located in Room 3363 in the J. Paul Jewell Student Center and can be reached by calling 288-7683.
