Wellness Services Information
The Wellness Model
Services provided by the College Nurse were created using the "Wellness Model". The Wellness Model addresses all aspects of wellness (Mind, Body, Spirit, Environment, Intellectual, Vocational/Occupational and Social). For more information, 

Nurse-Directed Wellness Services
Wellness Services is not a clinic; all services provided are within the nursing scope of practice. For this reason, although the College Nurse is able to provide students with many kinds of 'wellness' services (health promotion and illness prevention), the College Nurse does not diagnose illnesses, prescribe medications, perform lab tests or complicated treatments. In the cases where these things are necessary, referrals are made or resources given. 

Events, Workshops and Presentations
Folsom Lake College Wellness Services sponsors an annual fall Health and Wellness Day as well as multiple workshops and presentations during fall and spring semesters. For more information on workshops, wellness or health, please call (916) 608-6782 and speak to the college Nurse. You can check on campus bulletin boards, at the Wellness Services office, or the FLC website for upcoming workshop dates.

All services at Wellness Services are kept strictly confidential according to State and Federal regulations, HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act) and FERPA.

Most services and workshops are free
There is a $5.00 fee for student TB testing – please pay first at Business Services (in the College Administration Building). Business Services hours are Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Wellness Services offers:

  • First Aid - Campus Police are "First Responders" (however the College Nurse will assist with accidents and sudden illness on campus pending availability).
  • Evaluation of medical problems – help with developing a management plan for chronic conditions, instructions for self-care, and referrals to appropriate community resources as needed.
  • Confidential health advising & support - if medical or mental health referrals are needed, they will be provided.
