Student Health Nurse Services

Nurse visits are available in person and by phone to help talk through your symptoms and direct you to the right level of care. This might include home care, an appointment with a primary care provider, or a visit to a local urgent care or emergency department. 

OSU policy prohibits communicating about health information via email, as it does not provide the level of security mandated by federal guidelines. 

To send a message through the patient portal:

  • Log in with your ONID username and password
  • Click on “Messages” 
  • Click on “New Message”
  • Click on “Send a message to OSU-Cascades nurse”

Please be aware that the option to send a secure message to the OSU-Cascades nurse is only available when classes are in session during the fall, winter, and spring terms. 

All communications (whether in person, by phone, or electronic) are documented in your electronic health record. All records are maintained in strict confidence. No information is released without your written permission.

Nurse advice is available by phone 24 hours a day for OSU students by calling 541-737-9355. Please identify yourself as an OSU-Cascades student when you call.
