About the DAISY Award for Faculty

Many students talk about hearing a professor’s voice in the back of their heads even years after graduation. These dedicated nursing professors often do not receive appropriate recognition for the effect they have on students, patient care and the nursing profession.

The DAISY Foundation, as part of its service to the nursing profession’s role in patient care, established The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nursing Faculty to provide colleges/schools of nursing a national recognition program they may use to demonstrate appreciation to their nursing faculty for their commitment and inspirational influence on their students.
