Nurse Consult

A registered nurse is available for consultation by phone or secure message to:

  • Answer medical questions regarding illness or injury
  • Discuss health concerns
  • Give self-care advice
  • Schedule an appointment with a provider
  • Answer questions about immunizations
  • Provide general information about the Student Health Service
  • Provide community health information
  • Schedule immunization appointments

When calling the Nurse Consult line at (309) 438-RNRN, 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.
