Ms. Joy Block
Hello and welcome to Parkview. My name is Joy Block and I am the school nurse at Parkview. I started my nursing career at Parkview in 1998. I really enjoy children at the middle school age because of their spontaneity and creativity. I want to create a healthy and productive school environment, and help them with any medical needs they may have.
I graduated from DMACC in 1981 with my R.N degree, and completed my BSN degree in 2008 from Upper Iowa University. I have 20 years of hospital background experience.
I have three wonderful daughters, three brilliant son-in-laws and 5 grand daughters (3 are triplets) and 1 grandson. I graduated in 2005 as a massage therapist from Ankeny College of Natural Health and practice out of my home on Monday nights and during the summer. I enjoy home projects and the use of power tools. I like to walk, dance, read, and talk to my friends in my spare time.
