Student Health Services (SHS)

  • Assessment and Treatment of Injuries and Illnesses
    The Nurse Practitioner (NP), utilizing policies and procedures developed collaboratively by a consulting physician and administration, will see students for assessment of illness and injury. The NP is able to provide treatment for a selected number of common health conditions. Referrals are made to community resources that are covered by their personal health insurance when possible for those areas that are beyond the scope of practice. Psychiatric illnesses are diagnosed and treated as well.
  • TB (Tuberculosis) Testing: TB tests (PPD-Mantoux) are given on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and read two days later.
  • Immunizations (MMR, Tdap, Meningitis, HepB, Flu)
  • Nurse Practitioner consultation on health topics
