Children’s Minnesota nurses honored with DAISY Award for nursing excellence

Congratulations to four nurses were honored with a DAISY Award on Jan. 15 for their above-and-beyond care at Children’s Minnesota. DAISY Award recipients personify Children’s Minnesota’s remarkable patient experiences and are recognized as outstanding role models in our nursing community. These nurses consistently demonstrate excellence through their compassionate care and clinical expertise.

The January 2019 DAISY Award recipients include:

  • Melissa Elliot, BSN, RN, Minneapolis neonatal intensive care unit
  • Bonnie Bice, RN, CCRN, RNC-LRN, Minneapolis special care nursery
  • Grace Watson, BSN, RN Mercy special care nursery
  • Nicole Woodworth, MSN, RN, CPN, St. Paul neuroscience unit

The DAISY Award is a nationwide program that rewards and celebrates the compassionate care and extraordinary clinical skill given by nurses. The award is given in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, whose family wanted to celebrate “extraordinary nurses everywhere who make an enormous difference in the lives of so many people.”
