Hi – You would not think that Hawaii has dreary days, but it happens. We have had rain for part of every day for three weeks it seems. The Weather Service posted a Small Craft Advisory and Severe Weather Alert for high winds; gusts of up to 50 mph. Here on the sixth floor, the wind howls which is odd considering it is eighty degrees.

It is Christmas Eve Day, raining, and while the Pumpkin pie bakes in the oven, I took the time to re-organize my YouTube channel  videos.

Now, all the Mission Hospital videos are on a single playlist.

For me, the best thing I did to prepare for my first trip to Nepal was to share two hours with a person who had been to my destination – a picture is worth a thousand words. For that reason, I took lots of videos of daily life, the way the hospital runs, etc. I share them here in hopes that others will be more ready than I ever was!

For any nurse or doctor who is thinking of doing volunteer work  in Nepal, this will help you to prepare.

About Joe Niemczura, RN, MS

Experienced nursing educator and problem-solver. I have fifteen years of USA nursing faculty background, and fifteen of adult critical care background. In Nepal, I started teaching critical care skills in 2011. I figure out what they need to know in a Nepali practice setting. Then I teach it in a culturally appropriate way so that the boots-on-the-ground people will use it. I travel outside of Kathmandu Valley as well. When the recent violence happened, I knew the cities - I had trained people in those locations. One theme of my work has been collective culture and how it manifests itself in anger. Because this was a problem I incorporated elements of "situational awareness" training from the beginning, in 2011. Global Health Nursing is not all sweetness and light; not solely milk & honey and happy moms and babies.
