Book Description
Come From Away by Jeanette Walsh, Marilyn Beaton is the third volume in the best-selling nursing history series.

Overseas recruitment of nurses has been part of nursing in Newfoundland and Labrador since Wilfred Grenfell brought two nurses to Labrador in 1893. It is believed that hundreds of nurses have come from away to work, live, and sometimes make their home in the province.

This book shares the stories of 41 nurses who immigrated to NL from 1949 to 2004 and who made a tremendous contribution to healthcare in the province.

Their stories shed light on the challenges they encountered in the workplace and with the province’s lifestyle and culture. The stories are funny, poignant, and highlight the courage and commitment of these nurses along with the strong attachment they grew to have for their adopted home.
