After Hours

After Hours Care

For severe or potentially life-threatening medical emergencies, call 911 or go to a local emergency. For a severe or potentially life-threatening mental health crisis call 211.

When the Student Health & Wellness Center (SHWC) is closed, the Nurse Advice Line can be used by registered students at the University of South Florida campuses, or those who have voluntarily paid the current Health Fee, to ask a nurse health-related questions and receive basic self-health care tips. The Nurse Advice Line is offered at no-cost to students, and the nurse can help you decide if you should seek immediate medical care at an Urgent Care or Emergency Room facility, or wait to be seen at SHWC when it opens. Note that the after-hours advice nurse is not located at SHWC, so they cannot access your records.

Call the Nurse Advice Line at 813-974-2331.

While there is no charge for talking to the after-hours nurse, if you choose to seek medical care outside of SHWC, remember that you are responsible for the cost of that care. The pre-paid health fee does not cover emergency or urgent care services not treated at SHWC. If you have medical insurance coverage, check with your insurance company before seeking care to understand what it will cost.
