  • Meet Kim –

    She is a registered nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in Chicago.

    “Caring for this world's tiniest miracles inspires me each and every day. Watching a baby born at only 1 pound grow into a chubby, smiling, 8-pound infant is absolutely amazing. My patients can't speak for themselves, so advocating for them is one of the most important things I can do. It is a challenging but immensely rewarding field and I could not imagine doing anything else with my life. I get to come to work every day and play an important role in these children's lives. The NICU can be like a roller coaster ride for our babies and their families; some days they make significant improvements, and the next day they may take a few steps back. Through establishing trusting relationships with our parents, I am able to provide comfort and guidance through the most difficult time of their lives. One of my favorite parts of my job is reuniting with the children and their families after they've been discharged. I have kept in touch with numerous parents after leaving the NICU and it is wonderful to watch these kiddos grow and thrive at home.”
