Niemczura is an American nursing instructor at that University of Hawaii. His is currently in Nepal, working on a nursing education project. His blog Kathmandu Critical Care chronicles his Nepal adventure-getting a cell phone, working through the country’s “system”-which seems very archaic and outdated at times, for example the number of certificates you need to present to get simple things done like opening a bank account or getting a phone, and also about Nepal’s health care and education system.
