Nurse practitioners are advanced practice nurses with licensure to prescribe medications. Consulting physicians are also available as needed. The health center also serves as a clinical location for faculty-supervised work of graduate and undergraduate students.

9. Marquette Interchange highlights for the week of July 9
• As work on the project moves into a complicated phase, more local street closures will be required. Many of these closures will be simultaneous, reducing or limiting alternative routes. These closures are required due to the demolition and reconstruction of the remaining bridges. As the final stages approach and the work becomes much more challenging due to the height and complexity of these final phases, project administrators ask for your continued patience now that there is a “light at the end of the tunnel.”
