Student Health Centers
Student Health Center Although the Rockingham County Division of Public Health  provides low-cost health services, high school students often find it difficult to access these services because of the lack of transportation and because the clinics operate during hours when students are expected to be in school. To address these barriers, a multidisciplinary team of providers delivers comprehensive health care at the schools, including education, treatment, prevention, and referral.

The student health centers are open on school days from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and are staffed by either a full-time nurse practitioner or registered nurse. An additional nurse practitioner, social worker, health educator, and mental health counselor rotate among the health centers during the week. Physicians are available for immediate phone consultation at all times, and they review the charts of students treated each week.
 
Available medical services include:
  • laboratory tests
  • cute care services
  • dental screenings
  • gynecological services
  • education on pregnancy prevention and nutrition
  • social work
  • counseling
  • immunizations
  • sports physicals
  • health education
  • referrals
All services are offered free to students; however, parental consent is necessary for treatment except in the event of an emergency.
