These Nurses Are Holding Graduation Ceremonies For Babies Leaving The NICU

“We had a baby born at 29 weeks gestation so he was in the NICU for over two months, and when he was finally ready to discharge, the family came and brought this onesie that said ‘NICU grad’,” Jordan said. After seeing the onesie, Jordan said she wanted to make the day even more special — so she went home and made a personalized graduation cap out of construction paper.

“The day he got discharged, we gathered staff and we went in singing and dancing and gave him his cap — and his parents just smiled ear to ear — that’s when we knew it was something we wanted to keep doing for other families,” Jordan said.
