Ask a Nurse

Confidential replies to your health questions


What is Ask a Nurse?

Do you have a question about sex, drinking, stress or your health in general? Too shy or too busy to ask in-person? Ask a Nurse is an online platform that lets you ask health-related questions to our healthcare team. Your questions are confidential, anonymous and will be answered within 72 hours. Trust us, if you have a question, so do other students.
