NICU Nurse Appreciation Day
We love our nurses! September 15th is Neonatal Nurse's Day. Join us in celebrating the professionals who care for our precious children. They celebrate with us on the best days and comfort us through the worst. They are our advocates and friends. We are so grateful to have them!
Dear NICU Nurse - by Heather Hucks, "To be honest, I never knew you existed. I had never seen you. I had never seen a NICU... (N)o one really knows what happens behind those alarm-secured, no-window-gazing, doors of the NICU. Except me. And you." THANK YOU #NICU #Neonatal #Nurse Appreciation
Our NICU Nurses, Our Teachers By Melissa Haber - "Primary nurses are, in a way, surrogates for parents. They get to know and love the baby during those long 12-hour shifts. A good primary nurse is not only an advocate for your baby, but she will also empower you to be an advocate."
Happy Neonatal Nurse Day by Samantha Pridgen - "Roxy was in the NICU and Level II nurseries for 67 days. We saw several nurses during those 67 days. There were some that we loved and others that automatically made my eyes roll. Some in between were just there. In the midst of all those, there was one who really made a difference to us... Nurse Sherry."
The Profound Impact of NICU Nurses by Joel Brens - "I think I speak for a lot of parents of NICU/preemie babies when I say that the moment you are thrust into uncharted territory, it’s hard to know where to turn. While we knew that there was a possibility our son was coming early, when the time came I had no clue who to turn to..." And then they met Nurse Carol. For more like this visit www.preemiebabies...
