Carson-Newman University Health Services, located in the Kathleen Manly Building at 1611 Russell Ave (across from the First Baptist Church; beside Burnett Hall), provides nonemergent outpatient care for all currently enrolled students. Carson-Newman University Health Services is staffed by a registered nurse (RN), who is experienced in triaging various medical problems and oversees Health Services. Limited appointments are available with a family nurse practitioner (FNP) upon request. A medical doctor (MD) serves as medical director of Health Services and is available to the RN and FNP for consultation.

However, exceptions may be made in cases of contagious illness or severe illnesses requiring an extended recovery period. These statements are provided on an individual basis. It is the student’s responsibility to communicate directly with the instructors. Please review page 26 of the Carson-Newman University Undergraduate Catalog Class Attendance Policy.
