The overall mission is to promote and enhance the physical health of students so that they may reach their potential for personal growth and academic success. We believe that the psychological, physical, spiritual and social realms are interconnected and influence a student’s ability to thrive, learn, grow, and maintain healthy living in a collegiate environment. Health Services provides opportunities to discuss with a trained professional a concern or problem a student is facing, gain a better understanding of the ailment and/or receive referrals and resources for a more appropriate treatments. Furthermore, students may consult with a trained professional about finding better ways to live a healthy lifestyle that will help to enhance their overall wellbeing and vigor.
Health Services abides by the laws and regulations of privacy and confidentiality, and within the parameters of FERPA. When requesting a basic medical consultation, you will be asked to sign a form acknowledging that you “authorize NDNU Health Services to provide services in the form of medical attention, advice, or education.” Additionally, anyone evaluated will be asked to sign a “Notice of Privacy” related to HIPPA. If you are requesting any information to be released to an insurance company, another clinical provider, or third party you must come by Health Services to sign an authorization of release, which will be provided to you by the nurse. If you have any questions or concerns about this, please contact David Muir, LVN, Health Services and Education Coordinator or Karin Sponholz, Ph.D., Director of Counseling and Health Services.
