I saw a video posted on facebook today about what it means to be a NICU nurse and my eyes began to well up with tears.  I am so honored to work with these precious babies and it truly is rewarding.  I wish that I could put into words all of the emotions that accompany this career… the terrible, tremendous heartache, as well as unspeakable joy.

I don’t know how long I will work in NICU, it could be a few years or the rest of my career, but I pray that no matter how long I am there, the miracle of these tiny lives will never be lost on me.

Happy Nurses’ Week to all of my nurse friends; you do a really important job!
