MeritCare Health Line, a 24-hour nurse phone line, is changing its name to Ask-a-Nurse, effective Tuesday.

Ask-a-Nurse is a nationally recognized name for nurse telephone triage. While customers should not notice any change in services, it is hoped that the new name will help the service be more easily identified and remembered.

MeritCare Ask-a-Nurse is staffed by registered nurses who assist customers in eastern North Dakota and western Minnesota with health questions and physician referrals, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

In the past nine years they have handled a total of 710,000 calls, averaging more than 350 calls per day.

The number is (701) 234-5000.
