Brennan MS, RN (Lead)
- Is a former Director of Nursing at a hospital in Syracuse,
New York, a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the US Army Reserves, and a
Senior Account Executive for Thornberry
Ltd. (Computerized Clinical Documentation Software for
Hospitals, Homecare, and Hospices). He is an 18 year member of the
Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Quartet
Singing in America (SPEBSQSA).
He is also one of the writers of the first nursing musical - Who's Got
The Keys? His years in top management have left him delusional, but he
is undoubtedly the best dancer in the group and can still carry a tune.
Gardner MSN, RN, (Bass) - Works as the Team
Leader in Utilization Review at the Syracuse VA Medical Center. He
possesses an uncanny knack for forgetting the words to songs at critical
moments. Glen's magic tricks and comedy insights have amused those who
are easily distracted. His 1001 Viagra jokes have become legendary and
he will go to great lengths to tell his jokes.
Beach MSN, RN, ANP, (Tenor) - Is the Ambulatory
Data Capture Coordinator for the Syracuse VA Medical Center. A lifelong
student who likes to write songs about endogenous fatty substances in
his spare time. Being the youngest member of the group, he usually gets
to do the menial work, like designing web pages. Being the group's
computer nerd is perfectly acceptable to him.
Kneale (Baritone) -
Is an Administrative
Director of Radiology at a local community hospital. He comes to us with
many years of vocal experience. In his spare time, Bob sings tenor with
the renowned Bernie
Schmidt Singers and is the director of music at his church.
Being the newest member of the group allows Bob to learn twice as many
words as the rest of the group. Although not technically a nurse, Bob is
married to one which is close enough for us.
McEvers MSN, RN, ANP
- Is an Adult Nurse Practitioner in an Open Heart Unit at the
SUNY Health Science
Center in Syracuse, NY. He is a dedicated Barbershopper and a member
of SPEBSQSA like Larry and he went to school for most of his adult life
like Wayne. Besides being the most talented flautist in the group, he's
just a darn nice guy and you just want to hug him when you see him!

to catch the interview with The NurSing Notes in the Summer 1997 issue
of The Journal of Nursing Jocularity.
By the way, did you know
that all of the NurSing Notes are married to nurses? It's true!

world's first nursing musical. Available now, through the Jocularity
Catalog in cassette tape, CD, or video formats
If this isn't enough to make you want to order the music, here
are some testimonials...
This tape changed my life, I had low self-esteem and
had trouble with personal relationships... then I listened to The NurSing Notes
tape and realized that I really don't have any troubles, but boy, could they use
some professional help... Registered Nurse.
...no detectable talent...Theatrical Agent.
You know, after working all of those double shifts, I
didn't know what to do with the overtime money... then I heard about the NurSing
Notes tape... Overworked Staff Nurse.
