Welcome Nurses of USA!
I have more than one blog, and this is the one that describes, in professional terms, “CCNEPal” the critical care education project in Nepal that I started in 2011. Please feel free to browse the site.
There’s a list of blog entries to the right, as well as helpful links to nursing in Nepal. In Nepal I explain USA to the Nepali people I work with. In USA, I explain Nepal to Americans.
Yes, I was in Nepal for the earthquake.
I knew that Kati Kleber, RN, the author of “Becoming Nursey” was going to print a review of my book, and I was pleased to read it today. She was so enthusiastic she made me want to read the thing myself ( and, I already know how it ends!)
I realize that the most recent entry prior to this one was on the care of patients with injury due to “Rubber Bullets” used in riot control actions by police in Nepal. They are having political turmoil, a sad echo of the drama described in my book, The Sacrament of the Goddess. I needed a better entrée page – here it is!
I have never met Kati or spoke with her, but I got acquainted with her writing because she wrote a blog entry on the topic of nurses with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. I thought the two entries complemented each other.
Also, I thought her advice for new RNs in Becoming Nursey was right on. It’s been great to follow her blog, and you should do so if you haven’t already.
The novel has it’s own actual blog, as we all as a FaceBook page. I invite you to look at those. In particular, there’s a page titled “Glossary of Terms used in the book” that will help once you finally read the novel.
