OTC nursing students head to Nicaragua

A group of OTC nursing students are headed to Nicaragua on April 9, but they aren’t going for a spring break vacation. They’re going with a purpose — to provide medical care to villagers who have little access to medical services.

The 10 students and three faculty members will travel to several communities outside of Managua. Because of their medical training, the students will participate in assisting at medical and dental clinics with local Nicaraguan doctors. The students will be distributing basic first aid kits and hygiene items in two villages. They held fundraisers, like selling cookies and cakes at OTC, to purchase medication and medical supplies to distribute during their eight-day visit.
