Honduran nurses head home with new skills

CANTON, Ohio – A partnership between nurses in Canton and Honduras could save lives in Central America.

The Aultman College of Nursing is teaming with Orrville-based nonprofit Central American Medical Outreach to improve health care in Honduras.

Earlier this summer, four nurses from Hospital de Occidente, the public hospital in Santa Rosa de Copán where CAMO operates, spent four weeks training at Aultman.

It was the start of a multiphase project to standardize nursing care in Honduras, a country where medical professionals aren’t measured by uniform standards, licensing is often based on the honor system and hospitals don’t adhere to protocol.
