PROVIDING STUDENTS WITH QUALITY HEALTH CARE

The ONU Health Center is staffed by a Nurse Practitioner five days a week, a Physician Collaborative, and registered nurses. The Health Center provides general health assessments, treatment and referrals to specialists in the area. During the summer, a registered nurse is on staff Monday through Friday with limited hours.

Students who are ill and miss classes are responsible for notifying their professors concerning missed classes/assignments. Written excuses are not issued.

Confidentiality:All medical records are strictly confidential, and no information is released without authorization from the student in accordance with the laws of the state of Ohio. Medical records are kept for four years after a student leaves ONU, and then the records are destroyed.
