A beautiful bond exists between dedicated nurses and the tiniest warriors—newborn babies—in NICUs across the country.

The emotional connection persists after the babies’ discharge, with nurses requesting updates on their growth milestones.

The Role of NICU Nurses:

NICU nurses play a multifaceted role that combines medical expertise, emotional support, and effective communication. 

Beyond providing medical care, they create a nurturing environment for premature or ill newborns and their families. 

Kartika, a nurse manager at Medcare Women and Children Hospital, emphasizes the uniqueness of each interaction with these tiny patients, influencing the profound bonds formed in the NICU.
