Nursing is more than just a job, it's a vocation, and this emergency room nurse demonstrates that beautifully.
Nursing is as much a vocation as it is a profession, and one nurse has found a beautiful way to give loving care to her patients even when she’s off the clock.
Brooke Johns is an emergency room nurse at Southern Hills Hospital in Las Vegas, and on her days off, she goes back to the hospital to do patients’ hair and spend time talking with them.
This simple act of brushing and braiding hair is a powerful moment of human connection. Johns told “Good Morning America,”
“I feel like there’s something very special about brushing somebody’s hair. It’s something just relaxing and very connecting.”
Johns has been a nurse for about three years, and started volunteering about a year ago. In that time, she has done hair care for more than 100 patients.
