In about a month I leave for Nepal, the Himalayan country between India and China. It looks small on the map but 27 million people are there.

It is most famous for Everest, the highest mountain on earth, but I am not a mountain climber. This is my sixth trip there. I usually go for ten weeks at a time, but this time I will be there for a year.

I am an RN and a University faculty member and I teach critical care nursing skills when I am there. To this point I have trained about 800 nurses in Nepal, and I will add to that number.

Before I go, my second book will be published. It is about medical care in Low Income Countries. the title is The Sacrament of the Goddess and you can get it on Amazon. It's a novel. I chose fiction because it pulls the reader in and keeps them going when they might otherwise quit.

you are invited to read my wordpress blog about teaching critical care nursing in Nepal.


When I think of Nepal the first image that comes to mind is:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
