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."
