An after hours telephone advice nurse is available by calling 615-898-2988 and following the prompts. Experienced advice nurses can help you figure out the best course of action: do you need immediate medical care, an appointment the next day, or will self-care help you? You may be asked for your student M number in order to use this service.

Important Note: The after-hours service is for those who are sick. If you have a routine or minor health concern or question, you should continue to call us during the day or leave a message to be answered the next business day.

If you have a medical emergency, dial 911 . Be prepared to give your name, your exact location and the nature of the injury or illness.

Q. The Student Health Services has blocked me from registering for classes. What should I do?

If you have a registration hold from Student Health Services, it is due to one of the following reasons:

  1. You have an unpaid balance from Student Health Services. This hold may be released by paying the balance in full at the Business Office or online through RaiderNet.

  2. You have an outstanding immunization requirement. You can view your holds through your Pipeline account under the RaiderNet tab. Also, you can see what is required on our Immunization Requirements page.
