Student Health Services is a unit in the division of Student Affairs located in the Browne Infirmary Building on the campus of the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. It uses a collaborative approach toward total student development, ensuring that students who use this facility will maintain an optimal level of health.

The hours for services are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday during the fall and spring semesters. The center is staffed by Registered Nurse and a secretary, and a contracted part-time Advance Practice Nurse and a registered nurse practitioner in reproductive health (who is on campus twice a month).

The Advance Practice Nurse hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. All in-house episodic services are covered by the student’s health services fee. However, if the Advance Practice Nurse writes a prescription or sees the need to refer to an outside agency for specialized services such as X-ray, laboratory, psychiatric care, dental, or major eye problems, payment is the student’s responsibility. Free medicine samples are often available.

Student Health Services’ mission is supported by four goals:

  1. To ensure optimal health by providing full-time and part-time students that use the Health Services Center an individual plan of care.
  2. To emphasize prevention strategies to students on a level of his/her understanding to avoid recurring health problems.
  3. To ensure that each primary and ancillary staff receives ongoing education and training on current health trends to support Health Services’ Mission.
  4. To assess the quality and quantity of activities in Student Health Services and confirm the appropriateness of the mission that users of Student Health Services maintain the optimal level of health.
