Robert Morris University, partnered with Universidad Politecnica de Nicaragua, travel to the barrios of Managua to provide medical care to the poor and to teach the nursing students (both American & Nicaraguan) how to better assess and care for patients.
During clinics the leading Nurse Practitioners perform patient exams after the nursing students assess the patients at triage and obtain their vital signs, find out their chief complaints and prepare the patients to be seen by the doctor. While doctors examine the patients, the nurse practitioners teach nursing students about their findings. For example, they have the nursing students listen to a heart murmur found, or look in an ear when infection is found.
