Tufts International Development: Honduras Project Receives Accreditation! by Olivia Lazan (A’21) Jan 24

The Trinidad School of Nursing (TSN) is a program created by members of Tufts International Development (Tufts ID) Honduras Team and implemented in partnership with the nonprofit Action for Education (AcE) and community leaders in Trinidad, Honduras.  It is a two-year auxiliary nursing school program, which will offer free tuition to all its students. The school is directed by AcE’s Director of Operations in Honduras, Jorge Encalada, and classes are taught by a local licensed nurse, Leny Paz. The institution has enrolled 43 students in the first year of the program, who have been going through the two-year vocational training program.
