Link to May 2014 interview on Himali Swoharu e-radio.

this is a short blog entry.

I recorded an interview with Mr. Sahadev Paudel, of Manhattan New York USA who has produced an ongoing podcast for many years. It was a pleasure to meet him in person – He’d interviewed me before, over the telephone.

It was a beautiful day in Bryant Park, and passersby stopped, eavesdropped and took photos of us (!)   we paid them no attention.

here is the link to it. the interview is about 30 minutes long.


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.
