These Nurses Are Holding Graduation Ceremonies for Premature Babies Leaving The NICU



The staff has been holding mini ceremonies for premature babies leaving the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) who were born 6 or more weeks premature.

Newborn babies are admitted to the NICU when they require intensive medical care. The NICU is staffed by a team of doctors and nurses who take care of the infants until they are healthy enough to go home.

Each NICU grad gets sent home with ~full honors~ and receives a personalized graduation cap and portrait.

And the portraits of these grads and their tiny caps are seriously cute.

“Leaving the NICU can be joyful but also scary and nerve-wracking. So this was our way of bringing a little normalcy to taking the baby home,” Jordan said.

“We hope to make a wall of graduates with these photos because it can also help give new parents a little hope and reassurance,” Jordan said.
