The DAISY award for extraordinary nursing students. Honoring nurses internationally in memor of J. Patrick Barnes

 About the DAISY In Training Award

The DAISY in Training Award ™ is designed to remind students, even on the hardest days in nursing school, why they chose nursing as a profession.  By recognizing nursing students for the above-and-beyond care and compassion shown to patients and their families, we celebrate what it truly means to be a nurse. We honor the nurse-patient connection that makes all the difference to patients and their families in their healthcare experience and that makes great nurses truly great.
