Meera Nosek is a professor of nursing from the University of San Francisco, California USA. She teaches in the USF School of Nursing and in the MPH program there. She will be visiting Kathmandu soon, from Oct 26th 2013 to November 2nd. She has done previous work in global health nursing and she wishes to meet with professional colleagues while in Kathmandu. She contacted me to ask my advice. It is not often that a person with those kinds of credentials will visit KTM. I told her I would send word.
Professor Nosek has a doctoral degree from the University of California at San Francisco; a Master’s degree in Public Health from the University of California at Berkeley; and is a Certified Nurse Midwife. Her usual teaching focus at USF is in the area of nursing research. She is a member of Sigma Theta Tau, the international honor society for nursing scholarship. She is interested to learn more about the maternal-child health delivery system of Nepal.
a request to nurses of Nepal
My advice to her was to meet with nursing faculty, some of the larger teaching hospitals, and the Midwifery Association. If you are reading this, would you please contact her and help make it happen?
What she would like to do
Dr. Nosek has travelled to other countries but this is her first trip to Nepal. She will be learning about the culture and meeting the people. She hopes to develop contacts within the Nepali Nursing Community for future collaboration. USF has a number of ongoing international nursing projects in other parts of the world.
She is a particular resource on the subject of nursing research. She is interested to talk with graduate students and nursing faculty while in Nepal. I told her I would promote her visit, and my hope is that she will be invited to speak to groups of students, tour some of the hospitals, and get a feel for Nepal.
How to contact her
She does not yet have a FaceBook profile or page. When she gets one I will post the link on the FB page for CCNEPal. In the meantime, her email is firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and she will be delighted to hear from nurses in Kathmandu.
