Schedule an appointment with a provider
Answer questions about immunizations

When calling the Nurse Consult line at (309) 438-RNRN (7676), you may be asked for your name, university ID number, address, telephone number, and the reason you are calling. The information discussed with the nurse is confidential. The telephone consultation will not provide you with a definite diagnosis or treatment, but will help you formulate a plan for self-care or follow-up when necessary.
