Q&A: What is the purpose of student health services at college?

Question by sunnygirl1255: What is the purpose of student health services at college?
Wondering why they are there, is it a nurse or what? And when would you go to see them?
I was feeling really dizzy the other day and was going to go to have them check my blood pressure heart rate but wasn’t sure what they were really there for. LOL

First year at college. Just diagnosed with a rare, fatal lung/heart disease, not many doctors or nurses know about so not even sure if the health services at my college can help me if I have an issue while in class.

Actually, you pretty much nailed it. They’re there for things like checking your blood pressure if you feel dizzy or if you have other minor health issues. If it’s anything beyond simple stuff like that, they’ll have a friend come and get you to take you to a doctor or in extreme cases, call an ambulance.
