Orientation 2016-2017 Issue
We realize not every student will need to come into the Student Health Clinic. That’s where health promotion comes in!
We maintain a health-related bulletin board and brochure rack in the hall outside the Student Health Clinic on the Blountville campus and in the Student Lounge at the Elizabethton campus. These publications are helpful for self-learning as well as class-related projects.
Health-related information displays with free brochures are placed in the Atrium and Courtyard of the Blountville Campus.
What do I do if I need to see a doctor and do not have a primary care physician?
The Office of Health Services maintains a list of Urgent Care Clinics in the area. To obtain a list of primary care physicians in the area who are taking patients and who accept your insurance, contact the Health Professionals at Mountain States Health Alliance by calling 1.800.888.5551.
Self-Care Stations with supplies for first aid and minor illnesses are available at no charge. Complete a self-care form and take only what is needed or recommended.

Student Health and Clinic Services for information on how to access care from a Registered Nurse or licensed Nurse Practitioner.
Northeast State’s Health Services and
ETSU’s College of Nursing have partnered to provide a
Medical Clinic with licensed Nurse Practitioner appointments at Blountville during the 2015 Fall and 2016 Spring semesters. Nurse Practitioner hours are Wednesdays from 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm and on Thursdays from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm.
All registered Northeast State students may schedule appointments with the Medical Clinic. The Medical Clinic is funded entirely by Student Activity Fees. Faculty and staff, as well as students, may utilize the Nursing Consult and Self-Care services. There is no charge for office visits
