I want to do a process where for each street segment, the network distance from the nearest point in a set of point features is calculated. The result is that when you click on a street segment using identify, one of the fields shows the network distance to the nearest point.

For euclidean straight line distance, this process is very simple using the Near(analysis) tool. I pretty much want to do the exact same thing except using network distance instead.

I have already created and built a network layer so no need for info on that.

The task you have can be solved by using the Closest Facility solver in Network Analyst. This will let you find the closest features and report the travel time / distance from every input points to those features.
