CCNEPal 2014 is counting down the days

Quick summary

I bought my ticket for the 2014 trip. I leave from USA May 24th and I arrive in KTM May 26th at 0830. The plan is to continue teaching critical care nursing skills.

I have been working to set this up. This year I finished writing my second book, The Sacrament of the Goddess, and I am pleased to report it will be officially published May 1st.  I have been working on the publicity for the book.

In the meantime, I am activating all the contacts I made on previous trips to Nepal. I will offer my training to as many nurses as I can. I am willing to travel outside the Kathmandu Valley. Wherever you are, please know that if you want the training in a location near you, I will come there if you can find a place to hold the class and thirty people to take it.  start thinking about it now. Talk it over with your in-charge. then send me an email

Thirty four days until I am back in Nepal. Let’s work together to save lives.




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.
