History, Mission and Objectives

The Nightingale Nursing Education Project in Siguatepeque, Honduras


Introducing Nightingale Nursing School Project

Siguatepeque is a growing city in the central mountains of Honduras at the heart of Central America. The name for the city is the Indian name for “mount of beautiful women”.

Statistics for Honduras:

  • 64.5% of households live under the poverty line.
  • 41.1% of the population earn less than $1 (USD) a day.
  • 83.1% of the population have no health insurance.

From this environment the Episcopal Reverend Vaike Madisson-Molina had a vision of addressing these needs with God’s love. Inspired by the life of Florence Nightingale, she became a nurse and started a nursing school.

The school was started on August 13th, 2011 (the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s death) with the slogan “Doing Good and Healing…” (Acts 10:38).

The school gives the opportunity to impoverished young village women, with an average 11th grade education, but great character and high motivation, the opportunity to learn much needed skills, serve the surrounding community and provide for their families.

Winter 2024: Update, Nightingale Nursing School in Honduras 

Funds have been donated anonymously by members of the Episcopal Cathedral of St. Luke in Orlando and the First Presbyterian Church of Dunedin to help fund an ongoing Student Recruitment Office and Program to ensure sustainability through student body expansion and inclusion of students who can pay a portion of the required tuition; with the balance being paid through partial scholarships from annual donations through C and M LifeLine.
