Overview: Numerous studies have shown the healing power of laughter. In nursing, humor can help patients alleviate tension, improve their recovery experience, and even improve their physical well-being positively impacting their overall health. Nurses can use humor to foster relationships with their patients so that their patients trust them and feel comfortable to receive the care they need. Of course, humor can be disruptive if not used properly; good judgment is necessary to know what kind of jokes are appropriate and when.
