Nurse Practitioner Appointments 

Nurse practitioners are licensed healthcare providers who can prescribe medication, examine patients, diagnose illness, and provide treatment. More information on nurse practitioners. 

All visits are by appointment, but we do reserve same day appointment for urgent medical needs. You may schedule by calling the clinic at 1-206-296-6300.  

Appointments are primarily in person at the clinic. Virtual visits are possible for some appointment types - call the SHC for more information if this appointment type is wanted.  

Vaccine/Lab Visits 

These appointments are usually with a medical assistants work alongside the nurse practitioners in the SHC. More information on medical assistants. 

These appointments are for certain vaccines, TB screens, blood tests for CON/DUS, or if directed by your nurse practitioner. This will not be a nurse practitioner visit.  To schedule an appointment, call the SHC at 1-206-296-6300 

If you need labs done that were ordered by an outside provider, we recommend going directly to a lab such as Labcorp. Nearby locations include: 

  • Nordstom Medical Tower, 1229 Madison St, 6th floor, #610, Seattle, WA 98104 (near Swedish First Hill). Schedule an appt now.
  • James Tower, 550 17th Ave, 2nd floor, #200, Seattle, WA 98122 (near Swedish Cherry Hill). Schedule an appt now. 


Arrive on time whether it's in person or via Zoom with forms complete. It is very important that each patient arrives at their scheduled time with their patient portal forms completed.  If you are late you may need to be rescheduled.   

Insurance card 

Enter your insurance information on the patient portal. Upload a copy of the front and back of your insurance card (If you cannot find your insurance name, call the SHC and we will help). It is still a good idea to bring your insurance card with you to every appointment. If you do not have insurance, you are still able to utilize the Health Center services. Please let the receptionist know when you schedule your appointment if you do not have health insurance.  

All students pay a $5 flat visit fee to see a nurse practitioner. There is not an administrative fee charged to for a Vaccine/Lab only appt. You may have additional costs depending on the services received - you will be informed of the cost prior to the service being provided.  

If you are unable to make it to your scheduled appointment, we require 4 hours’ notice due to the high demand for appointments. If you miss your appointment or don't give appropriate notification it will be considered a Missed Appointment which carries a $20 charge.  You have the option of cancelling your appointment on the patient portal as long as it's more than 4 hours before your appointment. 

To complete your forms, you will log onto the Patient Medical Portal using your SU email username and password. 

On the home page you will see your appointment and a green Forms button. Click on the green button to access the forms required for your upcoming appointment. You can also click on Forms which will show the required forms for the appointment.
