The DAISY Foundation, created to express gratitude by the family of Patrick Barnes that experienced extraordinary nursing, is the international leader in meaningful recognition of nurses. Everyone who is involved with DAISY, whether they are presenting the awards, choosing honorees, or coordinating the program, is an extension of this family and their expression of this gratitude.

Today, DAISY proudly honors nurses wherever they practice, in whatever role they serve, and throughout their careers -- from nursing student through lifetime achievement. Given the growing importance of teamwork in delivering high quality healthcare, The DAISY Team Award plays a vital role as DAISY partner organizations embed the program in their cultures. 

Similarly, recognition for nurse leaders who create the environment where compassionate care thrives pays tribute to the leaders who are eager to provide recognition for their teams but don’t get nearly enough recognition themselves.

The DAISY Award for Nursing Faculty is helping to lift those nurses who educate and nurture future nurses and those advancing their expertise.

DAISY organizations now honor their nurses who advance health equity with their work in the community.
