Joanne left nursing school many, many years ago, the night before she was to start giving shots to live patients. Yow-Za!!
After a long career as an elementary school teacher, she retired and found fun working with Too Live Nurse. Now she helps this fabulous group bring laughter to nurses. She's busy behind the scenes dressing and undressing everyone in the dark. And, if you think you're having fun in front of the stage, imagine all of the fun she's having backstage!
Joanne holds her Masters in Theater and has helped create costumes for many, many shows for many, many years for many, many theater productions! She lives with her loving husband, Chuck, and is proud of her one son.

Ed began his nursing career in 1970 when he entered Columbia Memorial Hospital's School of Nursing in Hudson. He acquired his Nursing Diploma in 1973 and immediately began working at the Albany Medical Center in the Northeast's High Risk Labor and Delivery Room and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, where he stayed for 5 years. He subsequently worked at Albany Medical Center's 30 bed Adult Intensive Care Unit for another 5 years. He then went to the Stratton Veteran's Administration Hospital in Albany and began working in their Cardiac Care Unit. He switched to the Hemodialysis unit and worked there for 7 years. Then he transferred to the Operating Room/ Recovery Room and remained there for 7 years. He currently is the Community Health Nurse Coordinator for the Stratton VA Medical Center, where he is responsible for initiating home care for all the veterans in the Albany VA catchment area. He is widely recognized as an expert in discharge planning, and has delivered presentations at nursing conferences in San Antonio, Nashville, and Atlanta. He has delivered talks titled, Discharge Planning; Payment Sources for Home Care; The Role of the Discharge Planning Nurse; and Utilizing Medicare for Home Care Funding. He acts as a consultant to physicians, home care agencies and other home care coordinators within the VA system, and he has oriented new Community Health Care Coordinators to their positions within the VA system. Additionally, Ed helped develop, produce and teach on a VA training video for new CHNCs within the VA system.
From a "performing point of view", Ed has been singing since he was a kid. He has performed in numerous musical theaters in a multitude of roles including: Riff in West Side Story (when he was much younger), to Arvide in Guys and Dolls. Ed sang the part of Cervantes/Don Quixote, in Man of La Mancha, and he enjoyed making audiences titter as Fagin in Oliver. (In this age of political correctness, not many people feel comfortable using the word "titter".) He uses his experience to create many zany characters including the lovable GOMER in the hit nursing musical Who's Got the Keys?.
Ed has been married for 25 years, almost 26 years, to his beautiful wife, Lorraine. Together, they raised two gorgeous daughters: Diana, a Senior in college at the State University of New York at Fredonia, and Katherine who is just finishing up her freshman year in High School at Ichabod Crane High School in Valatie, New York.
All that, and he has great legs!
Sincerely, Too Live Nurse
Too Live Nurse believes that one of the best ways to combat stress and promote learning is through the therapeutic effects of humor. We further believe that an integral part of a positive self image is the ability to laugh at oneself. It is with this in mind that we have produced our recordings. Besides, it's fun to laugh so hard that you wet yourself!
Sincerely, Too Live Nurse
