New 24/7 Medical Resource for Students

Macalester has a new nurse triage phone line for students.  It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  NurseNow (aka AccessNurse) can be reached by calling the Hamre Center (651-696-6275, Deaf, Hard of Hearing or Speech Limited Callers can access these numbers through MN Relay 711) and selecting option 3 on the voice mail message.  If you call during office hours and reach a staff member, ask to be connected to the nurse line.  NurseNow is familiar with emergency referral resources in the area and will provide the Hamre Center with a report of the call.  You can either share your name when you call or can remain anonymous.  The call is always free.
