Here to help answer your questions

A triage nurse is available at Health Services during normal business hours for triage and phone advice. Our triage nurse is here to help you determine the best course of action regarding a health problem.

Not sure if you need an appointment? No problem! Call and speak with our triage nurse to address your health concerns. Depending on the nature of your problem, the nurse will make recommendations for you to care for yourself at home, assist you in making a same-day appointment at our health center, or recommend emergency care options.

What else can the triage nurse do for you?

  • Get your medications re-filled.
  • Find an off-campus specialist.
  • Schedule an appointment for a lab draw.
  • Save you a trip to the Health Center.
  • Schedule an appointment with a dietician or nutritionist.

There is no charge for this phone consultation, but this service is only available to currently enrolled students at Calvin College and Kuyper College.
