Health Consultation

Health Consultation Programs (HCPs) are free programs offered to our contracting towns where a nurse will meet with individual adult residents to confidentially discuss health issues/concerns along with preventative measures for better health. A health history along with blood pressure measurement, and height/weight measurements are performed during the meeting. Referrals to Bergen County as well as outside resources are available. Individualized counseling, education and follow up is conducted.

We are constantly working to improve our services, diminish our language barriers and conduct surveys. Please visit your local municipal building or local health department for more information.


New Jersey law (N.J.A.C. 8:57-4.1)

New Jersey law (N.J.A.C. 8:57-4.1) requires any child attending private or public learning facilities to recieve certain disease preventing immunizations. The Public Health Nurses of Bergen County perform Immunization Audits for contracting towns to be certain the law is enforced.

Whenever immunization deficiencies are noted, the parents/guardians are referredback to their private physician in order to recieve up to date immunizations. If uninsured, the parents/guardians can be referred to a site where FREE Vaccines are available for eligible residents.
