I don’t start filling up the calendar until I arrive here. It’s easier to have a face-to-face meeting with each potential host agency to discuss the assessment, the goals and methods. I am very fortunate and grateful that the 3-day course I deliver has received excellent word-of-mouth endorsements, and I thank all the past participants for this support.

I already did two sessions at Chitwan Medical College in Bharatpur.

Pace of activity

I am on the same pace as in 2013.

Flexible to add more sessions.

I do have space for other sessions, for example I could add one in Bhairawha when I am nearby in BTWL.  I only work with host agencies that request me to come there. If you wish to have me come to a place where you practice nursing, tell your matron to contact me. I can give references.

Long term schedule

I will be here in Nepal until Nov 16th at which time I will go to USA for six weeks, then return from January until May 2015. I am aware that voluntary trainings are unlikely to be well-attended during Dasain. I wish to go on a short trek sometime around that time as well.

 

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.
