Student Health Services
Where are we located? JWSC Student Center on the ground floor level.
Students who feel ill or have a health-related questions are encouraged to call or email Student Health Services. Students may make appointments to see the Registered Nurse directly via the Student Health Portal. If the nurse determines that the student should be evaluated by a telehealth provider, an appointment will be made for the student during “Clinic Hours”, which occur Monday/Wednesday/Friday mornings between 9am-11:45am. Most appointments will be made on a first-come, first-served basis, however Health Services reserves the right to make exceptions based on professional judgment and acuity levels.
Student Health Services (SHS) envisions an environment for learning that fosters change and growth in students, with emphasis on increasing independence and self-determination where the student becomes engaged in the process, assuming responsibility for their life choices.
Student Health Services (SHS) strives to keep the student fully engaged in the learning environment at PSC, while assisting with their health and wellness concerns and/or challenges. Great care is taken to not over assist the student, providing care only to the degree necessary, in order to promote self-care and growth. SHS enables rather than hinders the process of becoming a fully functioning, independent adult capable of making sound decisions and dealing with the consequences of those choices. SHS is intended to function as an acute care clinic, providing assessment, testing, diagnosis, and treatment for unanticipated medical situations. Student with ongoing or chronic medical issues who require regular prescription medication or treatment should maintain a relationship with their primary care provider, either at home or in the local community. In the event of an urgent matter, SHS will work with the student’s regular providers to provide continuity of care on a temporary basis until the student can see their regular provider.
