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

These blogs, and my books, and videos are written on the principle that any person embarking on something similar to what I do will gain more preparation than I first had, by reading them. I have fifteen years of USA nursing faculty background. Add to it 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. 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.
