On the Carpet:

‘The Singing Nurse’ Soothes the Suffering


A nurse shows the healing power of song at work:

Jared Axen is a nurse in Valencia, California, who happens to love singing. During shifts, he would absent-mindedly sing as we went about his work, and soon realized he could help people with his songs.

Patients who heard him as he walked the halls belting out old love songs and Broadway hits started to request he sing to them.

Soon, serenading the sick became part of his daily rounds, gaining him the moniker “The Singing Nurse.”

This video, demonstrates not just the power to music to lift the soul and diminish pain, but also how small gestures of love in our every day lives can make a big difference.

About Big Red Carpet Nurse (1750 Articles)
Along with other stuff I enjoy that pays the bills (a plus!), I'm a budding nurse comic. I plan, like fake Opthomologist Rand Paul, to create my own professional organization solely so it will grant me a Doctorate. In my case, the org will be something like the AANC (American Association of Nurse Comics), and it will (trust me on this point) agree to make me the first ever DNC: Doctor of Nurse Comedy. I'll keep you posted!

I love your comments! Please, take a moment & share.
