a new blog for my new book The Sacrament of the Goddess

As many of you know, I have been writing a second book about Hospitals in Nepal.

The book is nearing completion. That does not mean that it will appear on bookstands tomorrow. There is a very long lead-in time between finishing  a draft of a novel and the actual publication of the book.

I have written about the process by which the book has evolved, here and there. I needed to create a single place for it, and so, I have now created a blog page with the same title as the book.

About Joe Niemczura, RN, MS

Experienced nursing educator and problem-solver. I have fifteen years of USA nursing faculty background. Add it with fifteen more devoted to adult critical care. 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.
