Changes during COVID-19 pandemic: 

Unfortunately due to the current mandates and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, NHCC’s Health Clinic service provider Health East has closed the on-campus clinic until June 2020.


North Hennepin Community College and Fairview Clinics have teamed up to make healthcare convenient and affordable to students and employees with an on-site healthcare clinic. NHCC students can receive care from a certified physician’s assistant or nurse practitioner with no out-of-pocket costs for minor illnesses, injuries and skin conditions. No appointment needed.

Dedicated care team

A certified physician assistant or nurse practitioner from Fairview Clinics will provide care three days a week. They are supported by the full care team at Fairview Clinics – Brooklyn Park. If you have a more serious health concern, you'll be referred to the appropriate provider or specialist.
