    Appointments are encouraged and can be made by calling (920) 748-8141 (leave a message if no answer), or by emailing [email protected]. Walk-ins are also welcome, but patients who have appointments will be seen before walk-ins.
  • Are there costs involved?
    There is no cost for nursing services. We provide free COVID, influenza, mono, strep, pregnancy, urinalysis and TB testing. We also provide free over-the-counter medication and medical supplies, including cold medication, cough drops, pain relievers, antacids, allergy medication, hydrocortisone cream, antibiotic cream, muscle rub, eye drops, ice packs, ace wraps and Band-Aids. We have canes, crutches, medical boots and shoes, a wheelchair and a knee scooter for use if needed for injuries that require such assistive devices. Costs will be incurred for referrals to lab imaging specialty providers if not covered by insurance. Prescriptions sent to the pharmacy also may incur costs, depending on insurance coverage. Vaccinations given in the Health Services office also may incur a small charge that can be paid in cash or charged to your student account.
  • I have a chronic medical condition that requires ongoing medical care. Can I see the provider here on campus for management during the school year?
    Make an appointment with Health Services to discuss an individualized plan of care while on campus. We will work closely with your primary care provider at home to provide continuity of care.
  • I take a prescription, can I get refills through Health Services?
    It is beneficial to have your prescriptions filled prior to coming to campus and on breaks, however, we can transfer some prescriptions to one of the local pharmacies in town. We do not prescribe or fill controlled medications.
