John Jay's Nurse Practitioner on Campus

What is a Nurse Practitioner?

Nurse practitioners (or NPs) are registered nurses who have earned a master’s or doctorate degree in Advanced Practice Nursing. The nurse practitioner at John Jay can diagnose, treat, and prescribe, much like a physician in a similar setting.

What illnesses are treated by the Nurse Practitioner at John Jay?

The NP at John Jay College treats a variety of illnesses via telehealth. Common issues include Covid infections, colds and flu, allergies, cough, sore throat, fever, headache, back pain, neck pain, joint pain, injuries, heartburn, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, bladder infections, sexually transmitted infections, insect bites and stings, burns, pink eye, and others. Prescriptions can be obtained for birth control, antibiotics, Epi-pens, rescue inhalers, and more. Orders for blood work and x-rays can also be provided. However, students are financially responsible for the cost(s) of pharmacy services/medication, specimen processing, and/or diagnostic imaging.
