Nursing Mothers

Balancing classes and childcare. 

Many of our students are parents and we understand the challenges of balancing classes and childcare. We do not currently offer child care, however, there are several child care options surrounding the campus and medical center including in-home providers and child care centers. For more information, please go to

Here at SCNM, a private and sanitary room has been designated to breastfeed or express (pump) milk. The nursing room, on a limited space-available basis, is located in the academic building to the left of classroom 8.

Please note, infants under the age of six months are not permitted on campus.

Please review our “Child Care” and “Visitors and Children on Campus” Policies as stated on pages 18 and 29 in the Student Handbook. Other than the nursing room, children are not allowed on campus, classrooms or laboratories.

Exceptions are:

  • Children as patients in the medical center or when accompanied by a patient
  • When children are invited for events on campus.

Children must be supervised at all times. SCNM assumes no responsibility or liability for infants/children, nor for any accidents or injuries to infants/children.
