This Miami University Workshop (3-6 credit hours) will enable students interested in nursing and other health professions to work besides physicians and health care workers in Nicaragua caring for residents in a local clinic. The students will participate in village triage, assess communities and issues that affect health in the Central American country of Nicaragua. Students will practice the Spanish language with the assistance of interpreters. Residents identified that need medical assistance and education will be seen in a neighborhood clinic. Students will participate in caring for those individuals at various levels based on prior experiences and knowledge. This is a service-learning experiential opportunity. Students will also experience the culture and people of Nicaragua along with the beautiful scenery with the rich cultural tours planned. Students taking this course will meet the global requirements and the nursing elective. If you need more information please email, or call Debbie Beyer @513-785-7746.
