The Daisy Nurse Award

The Daisy Nurse award is a nursing recognition program developed by The DAISY Foundation and implemented at St. Jude in 2013 to honor extraordinary nurses identified by their patients and/or their families for the super-human work nurses do every day. Developed by the family of Patrick Barnes as a way to say "thank you" to nurses everywhere for the extraordinary care their son received while hospitalized. Each quarter a winner is selected from the nominations by the DAISY Committee. Awardees are selected based on the detail of the nomination, their great clinical skill and leadership as well as their especially strong patient care and compassion demonstrated and aligned with our mission, vision, and values. Each DAISY nurses receive an "Extraordinatry Nurse" certificate, a DAISY Award pin, a unique hand-carved serpentine stone sculputure from Zimbabwe, entitled "A Healer's Touch", a Spotlight page on the DAISY foundation website.
