Health Care Heroes | Joanne Pardy
Healthcare Heroes • 2m 24s
Joanne is an Intensive Care Unit RN in St. John’s, Newfoundland. She retired after 32 years as a nurse
when her second grandchild was born. She returned to nursing when the call went out for anybody
with experience to help out during the Feb. 2021 outbreak in Newfoundland.
The most heart breaking thing for Joanne is to watch lonely patients in isolation who really need to be
near to family members. She asks for prayer that God would give her and her medical colleagues
strength and protection to get through each shift.
