Forrest General NICU to hold Reunion at Hattiesburg Zoo

A wild time awaits “graduates” of Forrest General Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) as they gather with their families for a reunion. Set for Saturday, October 1, at the Hattiesburg Zoo, the event will take place from 5-8 p.m. in the Zoo’s Africa exhibit where Sue Ellen the giraffe and her calf, Alberta, will greet families along with other animals native to the continent.
This event will provide past patients and their families an opportunity to visit with NICU physicians and staff who became extended family for these young patients.

“Caring for premature and sick newborn babies is such a privilege for all doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, and support staff in the NICU,” said neonatologist, Manika Sharma, MD. “The reunion offers us the opportunity to see our patients with whom we forged a special bond during such a difficult time in their lives. We invite any and all family of our patients who graduated from the FGH NICU to help us celebrate the unit and honor these amazing individuals.”

Forrest General Hospital’s Nurse Extern Program Graduates 20

Twenty students who participated in the 2022 Forrest General Hospital Nurse Extern Program completed their training Friday, July 29. The students, who hail from Alcorn State University, Mississippi University for Women, Pearl River Community College, and The University of Southern Mississippi, complimented the program saying they have gained valuable experience during the past two months that will help them better care for patients in the future.

The 2022 Nurse Extern Program, which began at the beginning of the summer, concluded with a luncheon. The nurse externs are senior-level nursing students who work under an RN preceptor to further develop their nursing skills. They will return to school this fall, with 17 of the 20 graduating in December.
