These Nurses Are Holding Graduation Ceremonies For Babies Leaving The NICU
Congrats, teeny tiny graduates!
Graduation season might be over for schools, but it's still in full swing for neonatal nurse Melissa Jordan and her colleagues at CaroMont Regional Medical Center in Gastonia, North Carolina.
The staff has been holding mini ceremonies for babies leaving the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) who were born 6 or more weeks premature.
Each NICU grad gets sent home with ~full honors~ and receives a personalized graduation cap and portrait.
The graduation caps are made out of foam sheets and come in a variety of colors, each with the message, "X days behind me, a whole lifetime in front of me," with the number of days they spent in the ICU.
