Joy Nugent received training in nursing and midwifery in Australia and Scotland and worked as a nurse in Toronto, Canada, and in London, England, over the course of her career. She pioneered a private nurse practice for three decades and founded NurseLink Foundation, a non-profit public company with charitable status providing end-of-life education and nursing services.
She is the author of: As Good As Goodbyes Get – A Window into Death and Dying and My Way – One Nurse’s Passion for End of Life.
This book shares not only Nugent’s personal soul journey but refers to her model for end-of-life nursing. Although she has had to face many challenges and struggles along the way, she acknowledges that her life has been divinely guided.
Nugent says, “The soul is the part of us that does not die and needs consideration along with keeping the physical body comfortable. Soul care is the essence of end-of-life care – more than that - it is the reason we were born.”
She currently lives in Adelaide where she is the Patron and Founder of Soul Talks Inc. This organisation promotes self-healing and encouragement is given to raising the level of consciousness within individual participants by means of sharing personal and professional journeys.
