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.

    Dear Joe
    Is it possible for you to do a one day session on July 2nd for our multidisciplinary team (doctor, nurse, physiotherapist, occupational therapist etc) in Spinal Injury Rehabilitation center, Sanga, Kavre? Looking forward for your reply.

    • Unfortunately, no. I would need to travel there and back, adding two more days to the entire experience. I try to minimize travel days as much as I can. I also ask that any session have a minimum or thirty participants so as to be efficient. There are some wonderful BLS instructors in Nepal such as the people at Center for Medical Simulation in Dillibajar. I try to focus on the 2-day or 3-day ACLS content material.

  2. Busy bee and a Niemczura to boot. ^__^ Happy Memorial Day weekend.
