UPDATED Feb 19th

We are still registering students for these sessions! From here on, go to Lalitpur Nursing Campus in Sanepa, to the library, and register there.

Session 1, March 1st, 2nd and 3rd – all seats taken, class is full.

Session 2, March 8th, 9th and 10th – 24 seats taken as of Feb 19th, six remain

Session 3, March 29th, 30th, 31st – eleven seats taken, nineteen remain

Session 4, April 5th, 6th and 7th, two seats taken, twentyeight remain – lots of space!

To register, bring 600 nrs, and read policies below.

it's going to be a nice day. I tried to find a spot that every knows, so you are less likely to be confused. The actual sessions will be held at LNC in Sanepa, but they have asked that we register off-campus, to avoid having a crowd that disrupts their normal operations.

CCNEPal will once again conduct a series of four sessions of our 3-day course of Critical Care Skills for nurses.

Who: CCNEPal, led by Joe Niemczura, RN, MS from USA

What: the 3-day course that covers basic life support, elementary ecg, airway, drugs, protocols, teamwork and communication. We teach standards that are based on research done by the American Heart Association( AHA); but it needs to be carefully and clearly noted that this is not the “Official” American Heart Association class. It is significantly adapted for the needs of Nepali nurses. At the end of the three days, participants get a certificate from CCNEPal. Mr. Niemczura has taught this course about fifty times throughout Nepal.

When:

session #1 March 1st, 2nd, 3rd (full)

session #2 March 8th, 9th and 10th (Sun-Mon-Tues)  9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (six seats left)

Session # 3 March 29th, 30th and 31st (Sun-Mon-Tues) 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (nineteen seats left)

Session #4 April 5th, 6th and 7th (Sun-Mon-Tues) 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (thirty seats)

(note: sign up for just one of the four)

Where: The class will be held in the legendary “Green Ballroom” – complete with crystal chandelier, at Lalitpur Nursing Campus in Sanepa.

Why: to advance the skills of the participants.

IMPORTANT: about the course fee. 600 rupees. there will be chiya at morning and afternoon but it does not include lunch.

OTHER COURSE POLICIES:

Each session is limited to thirty participants only. At the time of registration, it is “first-come, first-served.”

Bring the course fee and a pen drive. we do not accept telephone registrations, and the fee is nonrefundable. If after you register you are unable to attend, you can send a substitute, but you can not get your money back.

for further information: read back entries of this blog – the course objectives and outline are amply described. Browse the FaceBook page for photos of past sessions. Talk with one of the 1,400 previous participants in this training. send all questions to the CCNEPal FaceBook page. Please do not phone or email me directly.

All course announcements will be on the CCNEPal FaceBook page. Be sure to “like” the page.

The L.N.C. sessions have always included an interesting mix of  practicing nurses, nursing faculty, new graduates and the like. We did this in 2011, 2013, and 2014 and each time the classes were fun because of the mix.

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.
