This is a large air-conditioned classroom that can seat a maximum of thirtyfive participants. Our plan is to fill each roster with that number.

The session is very active. We sit and takes notes and discuss; then we go to beds in the back to do role-play of each scenario. We are fortunate to have a large classroom with air con.

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.
