PEP-RN on Call
PEP-RN on Call is a confidential hotline staffed by registered nurses with physician back-up. You must be a currently enrolled student to use this service. Call 800.413.0848 when you wish to speak with a nurse to help you make a sound decision about your health concerns and the type of care you should seek. The nurse can give you self-care instructions or refer you to the Department of Public Safety, the Student Health Center, a local urgent care center, or the emergency room. PEP-RN on Call does not diagnose or provide treatment over the phone and is in no way a substitute for seeing a physician. It is designed to help you decide what steps to take, depending on the information you provide.
