The Nurse Advice Line is a health care information service for active-duty military, family members and retirees enrolled in a Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center health clinic. The service is available 24 hours, every day of the year.

Whether you need advice about urgent health issues, guidance on on-emergency situations, or information about self-care for injuries and illnesses, the Nurse Advice Line is a source of help in making decisions.

When you call the Nurse Advice Line, a care coordinator will ask for your symptoms and beneficiary information. A registered nurse will call back within 30 minutes. The RN can offer care recommendations for current symptoms and can answer specific health-related questions from things like a child’s fever, non-emergency injuries, and other urgent health concerns.

Besides 24-hour access availability, the advantages of using the advice line include gaining a better understanding of a specific diagnosis or condition. You can also learn more about how to take care of yourself when you have non-urgent injuries and illnesses.

However, if you need medication renewals, test results, or other communications with your doctor or primary care team, you still need to contact them.

The Nurse Advice Line is a great resource to assist you with health-related questions and getting the right care at the right time. The number to call is 553-3695.
