Student Health Services

Student Health Services at Mercy College of Health Sciences support students in meeting their health and wellness needs while enrolled at college.

The goal of our Registered Nurse staffed office is to assist our students on campus in adopting lifestyle behaviors that will allow them to live, work, and learn together in ways that optimize their health and well-being. This includes health education and promotion services related to college health issues, such as alcohol, drugs, fitness, nutrition, disease prevention, and stress. Fostering an environment in which high priority is given to personal health and well-being supports the overall commitment of MCHS to help students reach their full potential in all aspects of their lives.
