A well-equipped Health Services Center, located in the Wellness Center, is available to provide services for the College community. Registered nurses are available for emergency treatment of injuries, assessment and care of illness, referrals, and health/wellness counseling. A supply of "over-the-counter" medications is available in the Center for self use.

Students will be referred to an area hospital, their family physician or community health and/or social service agency when necessary and upon request.

All students are required to have accident insurance coverage. If students are not covered by their own insurance, they must participate in the plan offered by the College. Information can be obtained in the Wellness Center.

A collection of current literature on health topics and social concerns is maintained in the Wellness Center. Health related programs are conducted and wellness clinics are available.

Immunizations / Physicals

Every student born on or after January 1, 1957, is required by New York State Public Health Law to provide NCCC with proof of immunity to measles, mumps and rubella. Proof of immunity may be accomplished by providing official documentation of two (2) measles immunizations, one (1) mumps immunization, and one (1) rubella immunization or by submitting serological proof of immunity.

New York State Public Health Law also requires colleges to distribute information about meningococcal disease and vaccination to all students regardless of age. Each student is encouraged to carefully review the materials provided to them. The "Meningococcal Meningitis Response Form" must be completed and returned to the Wellness Center indicating proof of vaccination or declination of immunization.

Students will not be allowed to register for classes until compliance with the NYS Public Health Laws has been satisfied. A hold will be placed on the student's account for the duration of non-compliance. The hold will be lifted upon submission of required documentation.

Syringe

A self-completed health history report is requested of all students. This report, and all medical information, is confidential information therefore not shared without consent. The health history form can be found in the folder sent with the "Acceptance Packet" from the Admissions Department upon the student's acceptance to NCCC.

Individual forms, as well as, the entire 'Health Services Packet', can also be found by clicking on the Forms tab at the top of this page.

Students in Allied Health programs are required to have a completed physician's physical on file in the Wellness Center prior to participating in the clinical area. A clinical clearance slip will be completed by the Registered Nurses in the Wellness Center when all requirements have been met. Please note: You must allow five business days for forms to be processed. Students may also be asked to provide additional information. Physical forms should be submitted approximately one month prior to the beginning of clinical rotations to allow sufficient turn-around time if needed.

Important Notes

Please direct questions regarding the Public Health Laws and vaccination requirements to the Registered Professional Nurses in the Wellness Center.
