After Hours Care
KSU Nurse Line
24 hours a day 7 days a week
Kent State University Health Services offers students the opportunity to call the KSU Nurse Line which delivers quality medical advice 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Even when the DeWeese Health Center is closed, students may call the KSU Nurse Line and talk to a registered nurse who will assess their medical concerns and suggest what to do next . In most cases, the students will be able to take care of themselves right at their residence. Sometimes students may need to see a health care provider. In these cases the nurse will help determine if the student needs an emergency and/or urgent care facility immediately, or simply advise the student to schedule a visit to the Kent State University's DeWeese health Center when the center is open.
