About Joe Niemczura, RN, MS

experienced nursing educator. author of The Sacrament of the Goddess and The Hospital at the End of the World. find them on Amazon! My seventh trip to Nepal to teach nursing started May 2014. This time I had funding to extend it for a whole academic year, and it's hard to believe the end is in sight. Nepal is a great country and the people here are wonderful to me. In May 2014 my second book, The Sacrament of the Goddess, was published. Find it on Amazon. I think more Americans need to learn about Global Health. The best way is to send them out as "boots on the ground" but that is not possible. The second-best way is to give them "eyes to see boots on the ground" - and so - the novel of Nepal! I maintain three blogs. You can find the list in the blogroll. On YouTube, look for the "Joe Niemczura Channel". and finally go to FaceBook to find the Fan Page for each of my books, The Hospital at the End of the World or The Sacrament of the Goddess. send me an email!
