Nursing Center for Family Health

The Nursing Center for Family Health (NCFH), a nurse-managed clinic initiated by the Purdue University School of Nursing in the early 1980s, is located in Lyles-Porter Hall on the West Lafayette campus. The clinic is a valuable clinical site for students and faculty and also a model for similar clinics nationwide. The clinic provides health and wellness screenings, graduate student preventive health physicals, immigration physicals and health education.

Today, nursing faculty and students provide various health promotion screenings.  Purdue retirees and their spouses are entitled to receive one wellness screening a year. Screenings can also be scheduled by those in the community at a cost of $40.00 per screening.  NCFH offers expanded wellness screenings in collaboration with Purdue Public Health nursing students, Purdue Nurse Practitioner graduate students and Language, Speech and Hearing students. These expanded screenings include a brief health history with blood pressure and biometrics. A finger stick is performed to check cholesterol, high density lipoprotein, glucose and a cardiac risk ratio. These screenings are also performed as an employee wellness activity to outside companies in the Lafayette community

The clinic is able to assist a client in an immunization review, answer questions in regards to health issues and provide referrals to local health providers.

Additional activities include preventive health physicals for Purdue graduate students and immigration physicals for Purdue staff/faculty and Lafayette community. Individuals needing access to primary healthcare may call one of the school’s nurse-managed clinics in Delphi, (765) 564-3016, or Monon, (219) 253-2404.
