Why Boise NICU:
"My contract ended this past week and I just wanted to say a final thank you for letting me be a part of the St. Luke's team. The staff was very welcoming, and I loved learning from and working with everyone. One day in particular that stood out to me was a day where I had two transfers and a discharge back to back. Multiple people came in to help me get everything done. I really appreciated the support and teamwork during that busy shift, and you should feel really proud of the positive environment that your staff is cultivating and bringing the newer nurses into. I enjoyed my time here and would be happy to come back again if there is a need in the future - keep me in mind!"
