Ask a Nurse returns


by Mira Dover


Ask a Nurse is a program that was developed in 2010 as a way for the University Health Center to interact with students, promote their services and answer pressing questions. This year, Rose Horner, the Patient Care Coordinator for UHC is excited to get back to the program. “We simply want to engage more with students,” Horner said. “This gives us a higher profile and lessens the anxiety they might have when reaching out to the Health Center.” The Ask a Nurse program is open for any and all students to chat with Nurse Horner.  

Horner is now offering to speak to student organizations or departments. She’s also available for information tabling in campus buildings as needed. “Any org or individual can reach out at any time to my office, I am happy to help them navigate resources on/off campus; I can present on a variety of health topics.” She currently offers discussions in STI/safer sex education, how to stay healthy on a college campus, a general overview of health center services or breast cancer awareness. She hopes to add other topics in the near future. 

For general questions, Horner encourages students to email Students or student organizations interested in Horner’s presentations should use her online form to request a discussion.
