The Student Government made the request to the rector of URACCAN.

A total of 52 Students of Intercultural Nursing of the Las Minas campus, among indigenous, mixed and Afro-Caribbean, received protective equipment to prevent the COVID-19 pandemic and other diseases, as part of the institutional protocol of URACCAN and the constant management of its rector, Dr. Alta Hooker, to take care of the health of the university community. These teams have been made possible by the Norwegian International Student and Academic Assistance Fund (SAIH).

The intercultural nurses of this campus will do their professional internships at the Carlos Centeno Hospital in Siuna. In this sense, the vice-chancellor of the Las Minas, PhD. Leonor Ruiz Calderón, explained during the delivery of the protective equipment that, with Ing. Félix Aráuz, president of the Student Government, also joined forces and in articulation with UNEN, the purchase of these equipment was achieved for protection in the hospital center.

"We are making efforts to reduce contagion and ensure the protection of all our students, it is difficult to deal with this pandemic, but these teams are going to help each of you protect yourself," she told them.

Félix Aráuz, president of UNEN Las Minas, assured that from the Student Welfare Directorate and from the Student Government itself, they asked the rector Hooker for these equipment and, through SAIH, it was possible to make the purchase of them.

The kit received by Students of Intercultural Nursing consists of a bottle of gel alcohol, glasses, a face mask and a hair protector.

URACCAN, from the Institute of Intercultural Communication (ICI), in articulation with all its enclosures, extensions and its different states, implements the campaign "I take care and I take care of you", to promote responsible attitudes and behaviors among the student, calling to use the mask well, save social estating, disinfect your feet when entering and constantly washing your hands.

Aráuz also took the opportunity to make a call to all, to start the tuition process of the second semester, since the system will be open until August 7, so it asked students to do so these days and thus avoid agglomeration at the last minute.
