The Wellness Center focuses on emotional and physical health, as well as preventive health education, by providing an array of services to undergraduate students at PLNU.
Our priority is to assist students in maintaining a high level of health and wellbeing as they accomplish their educational, personal, spiritual, and career goals. Wellness provides confidential primary medical care, counseling services and nutritional consultation for undergraduate students registered for classes on the main campus (charges for some medications and diagnostic tests may require a fee; charges are placed on the student’s account at the time of service).
