Medical Care

The Campus Health Center is staffed by Nurse Practitioners. The Nurse Practitioners are doctorally prepared registered nurses who in their expanded role are licensed to diagnose and treat many common conditions.

The Nurse Practitioners in the health center are family nurse practitioners that are able to order tests, and refer to specialists as needed.

The protocols for treatment are developed in conjunction with the Mississippi Board of Nursing and a collaborating physician.

Injections

Injections can be administered by the Registered Nurse provided the individual provides the medication with the exact dosing information. If the supplies are provided by the individual there is not a charge. There will be a $5.00 charge if supplies are used from the health center supply stock. The exception to this will be allergy injections. A Nurse Practitioner must be present before the Registered Nurse can administer allergy injections due to the possibility of a reaction and follow-up care.
