Joanna started at the National Health Co-op as a Nurse Practitioner in 2018, and has extensive experience at various medical centres, residential aged care facilities, and community clinics. She has a bachelorâ€™s degree from Edith Cowan University in Perth, and a masterâ€™s degree from Edith Cowan and Flinders University in Adelaide.
As a nurse practitioner, she can provide all standard nursing services and many more. This includes providing prescriptions, specialist referrals, pathology ordering, simple x-rays and ultrasounds, cervical screening, implanon procedures, and suturing.
Please note that allied health referrals, pelvic ultrasounds, skin checks and mental health or care plans are outside Joannaâ€™s remit â€“ these procedures should be booked with a GP.
