new e-book edition of The Hospital at the End of the World, on Amazon soon


update: the first version included links only to the book site. I have now re-done them to reflect the e-book site.

2009

When The Hospital at the End of the World was published in 2009, e-books and e-readers were just beginning to be popular. We didn’t make a simultaneous e-book version.

2013

I took a plane trip to visit my parents and it seemed as though everyone on the plane was reading a e-book, whether it was a Kindle or an I-Pad.

2014

so my publisher and I decided to make available an e-book version. It is uploaded to Amazon and ought to appear there within a few days.

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.

    • yeah, it was about time. the plane trip was really the tipping point – seemed as though every passenger was reading. I think the I-Pad made a big difference in e-readers. a smart phone is too small and a laptop is too big. and to think back, the I-Pad got a “who needs this” reception.
