Gundersen Health System's free, confidential Telephone Nurse Advisors are there for you every step of the way, offering professional, caring service. Staffed by registered nurses, Gundersen’s nurse advisors are available to answer your healthcare questions 24-hours a day, 365 days a year, no matter where you receive your primary healthcare.

If you have an urgent, but non-emergency medical situation and need professional advice, nurse advisors will talk with you about your symptoms and help you determine proper care for your illness or injury. They can also supply health and wellness information along with education on specific diseases.

Telephone Nurse Advisors can help with healthcare concerns such as:

  • You have a sick daughter at home and don’t know if she needs medical attention,
  • You are feeling under the weather but want to know if your symptoms can be treated at home,
  • Or if you have been diagnosed with a disease and want more information.

No question is too minor, and no concern is too small. (608) 775-4454
