About the Student Health Clinic
The VIU Student Health Clinic is open to provide medical health care to students enrolled at Vancouver Island University.
The VIU Student Health Clinic is staffed by Nurse Practitioners (NP) Diane Middagh and Bryan Schultz, and supported by Medical Office Assistant (MOA) Lynne Nomura.
Nurse Practitioners provide accessible, efficient, and effective health care that meets the highest standards of practice.
In British Columbia a Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a Registered Nurse with a master’s degree and advanced knowledge and skills who provides high quality health care. NPs are able to diagnose, consult, order and interpret tests, prescribe, and treat health conditions. They work independently and collaboratively and will provide VIU students with Primary Health Care using a team-based approach.
The Student Health Clinic aims to provide health care, education and preventive medicine, and involve its students in responsible health and wellness.
