Health and Wellness

The College nurses have the responsibility for the general health of the students under the guidelines of the Ministry of Education and Youth and in keeping within their legal scope of practice. 

Opening Hours 

The Nurses Station is open daily to students seeking medical care throughout the academic year EXCEPT for public holidays. Opening hours are between 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondays to Thursdays and 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Fridays. 

Students’ Medicals

  • Students should ensure that their immunization status is up to date in accordance with the immunization regulations of Jamaica.
  • Cases needing medical attention may be referred to a private doctor, Health Centre, or the nearest Public Hospital by the College Nurse.
