What Makes a Nurse DAISY-worthy?

DAISY nurses make a lasting impression on their patients.

They transform frightening and high-stress situations into those that are manageable – and meaningful.

They form lasting bonds with their patients by offering their presence, personalized attention and clinical expertise in a way that surprises, delights and reassures.

Some DAISY award winners have saved lives. Others have offered hope and healing where there was none before. But whatever their gift, DAISY nurses give of themselves completely – offering patients their generosity of spirit and hope for a healthier future.

“Just being around her made me feel I was healing a little bit faster”

“Medically she was wonderful, but emotionally she was even better”

“She is an all-star nurse”

“She would not give up on my baby breastfeeding”

“Her work was in line with every principle and tenet of what it means to be a nurse”
