Nurse Visits

The registered nurses at the Student Health Center are here for you and can provide a wide range of services for your health and wellness. You can call 314-977-2323 and ask to speak to the nurse on call any time the Student Health Center is closed. During regular clinic hours, student health nurses can provide the following:

  • Temperature checks
  • Vital sign checks
  • Medical advice - if we have no available appointments, you may speak with a nurse who can help coordinate the best options for care
  • Drug screens
  • Immunizations
  • PPD (tuberculosis screening)
  • Medication administration, i.e. Humira or other injectable with physician order (must establish with Dr. Delaney prior to first administration)
  • Allergy shot administration (Vials ordered by an outside physician can be sent to SHC. Care must be established with Dr. Delaney prior to first administration.)
  • Blood work (CBC, TSH, etc.) with physician order
  • Titers (immune status testing) - no physician order required

It is important to note that nurses can only give immunizations when a doctor is present during clinics (Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.) We stop doing blood draws at 4:30 p.m. so samples can be prepared for lab pick up.

Radiology Services 

To ensure timely and accurate testing, SHC maintains an on-site Radiology Service. A qualified Radiological Technologist (RT) certified by the state of Missouri and registered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists will perform your examination. In addition, radiology procedures ordered by providers outside Student Health Services are accepted. Results are interpreted by board-certified radiologists.

Certain radiological services are not available at SHC. These include mammography, CT scans and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). If your provider orders one of these exams, you will be referred offsite.

Please bring all health insurance cards with you to your visit. All radiology tests are billed to your health insurance.

Travel Clinic

Whether you are studying abroad, doing volunteer work or taking a trip during a break for fun, the Student Health Center is here to help you prepare for your trip and maintain your health while you are away.

We can coordinate vaccination or medication needs, as well as provide health information specific to your area of travel. Please make your appointment at least one month prior to departure, or at least two months prior if you will be traveling to Asia.

Our orders are placed to the Walgreens on Lindell; it is designated as a travel clinic and keeps travel vaccinations stocked. Please let us know if your insurance does not cover Walgreens.

Dietetics
 The Student Health Center has registered dietitians that can provide nutrition assessments and see students for ongoing care.


A nutrition assessment is an in-depth evaluation of objective as well as subjective information about your food and nutrient intake, lifestyle and medical history. This information helps the dietitian evaluate your nutritional status and develop a plan of care or intervention to help you achieve optimum nutritional health.

In order to get as complete a picture as possible, the dietitian will assess your weight, any available laboratory data, medical and diet history and lifestyle factors that may impact your nutritional health.

Our registered dietitians see students for a wide variety of reasons, such as:

  • Nutrition assessments
  • Weight management
  • Health-related diets for conditions like diabetes
  • Eating disorders
  • Nutrition and healthy eating on campus
  • Healthy cooking in residence halls
