The health services office provides preventative and maintenance health care services, as well as health and wellness education to the LSMSA community. Our full-time registered nurse (RN) and full-time certified nursing assistant (CNA) are located in the Student Wellness Center for day services. The nurse makes rounds at both residence halls each weekday starting at 7:30 a.m. and is on-call at all times when students are present.

Health and wellness services offered to our students include the following:

  • Assessment and treatment for illnesses
  • Scheduling local doctors appointments and coordinating transportation
  • Consultation regarding prescription and non-prescription medications
  • Administration of medications
  • Allergy injections (student's parent must provide serum, syringe and doctor's order)
  • Breathing treatments (student's parent must provide medication and doctor's order)
  • Administration of the flu vaccine
  • Education on topics such as smoking, alcohol use, skin cancer, eating disorders, healthy eating and sexually-transmitted diseases
  • Referrals to appropriate community practitioners
If necessary, additional services are available through the nearby Natchitoches Regional Medical Center Walk-in Clinic. Whenever more urgent diagnostic or treatment procedures are needed, the Natchitoches Regional Medical Center Hospital offers an emergency room and a staff of consultants trained in most health specialties.
