Is there a way to use update item action to update InfoPath field?

We have an InfoPath 2010 form published to a SharePoint 2010 library.  We are creating a Nintex workflow to route the InfoPath form for coordination.  We are using State Machine for the different stages of the routing.  Form has a status field (New, Draft, Pending, Hold, Submitted).  When a user selects the Sign button on the InfoPath form the status is changes to submitted which tells the workflow to change the state.  At the beginning of the state we would like to use Update Item action to set the Status to Pending the add Wait for Item Update (not equal to Pending) before any further actions are completed.  The issue is when configuring the Update Item only fields available are Content Type, Name, and Title; status isn't an option.  We know if we use a SharePoint list this will work, but not sure how/if promoted fields can be updated from the workflow.  Does anyone know if this can be done?
