Rose Horner, Patient Care Coordinator at UHC, will be available to answer students' questions.

The University Health Center’s (UHC) revamped program Ask a Nurse, is a window into UHC’s processes, procedures and student-health programs — all without students having to actually go to the health center!

Patient Care Coordinator, Rose Horner, describes Ask a Nurse as “visibility outside the health center.” Ask a Nurse occurs every Tuesday, and you can find Nurse Horner at the times and locations listed at the end of this article with giveaways, information, and an open ear to all student questions.

“I am a registered nurse,” says Horner. “I bring my laptop with me because there are a fair number of students who have never accessed the Health Center. They aren’t sure how to go online, use their patient portal and get appointments.” At Ask a Nurse, students are encouraged to ask Nurse Horner whatever questions they have and to learn about the myriad options UHC has. “We have so many different clinics available,” she says. “Everything from STI testing to immunizations to sick visits, gynecology and immunotherapy.” 

Nurse Horner says many of the questions she receives relate to accessing UHC, “winding up with a big bill” or confidentiality. She also feels that the Ask a Nurse program is a great opportunity for UHC to hear back from students. Overall, she says she would “love to see students plugged into the resources—not just the resources of the health center, but our mental health resources, Rebound, Madison Cares, Timely Care” and so many others.

So, where can students find Ask a Nurse?
