DAISY Award for extraordinary nurses
Children’s Minnesota is proud to be a DAISY Award partner, recognizing our nurses with this special honor. DAISY Award honorees personify Children’s Minnesota’s passion for caring for the most amazing people on earth. These nurses consistently demonstrate excellence through their extraordinary compassionate care and clinical expertise, and they are recognized as outstanding role models in our nursing community. Nurses are nominated by anyone in the organization – patients, family members, other nurses, physicians, other clinicians and staff – anyone who experiences or observes extraordinary compassionate care being provided by a nurse. Please share your story to help us recognize and celebrate nurses who continually re-imagine what it means to provide the best health care.
What is the DAISY Award?
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”. Children’s Minnesota is proud to be a DAISY Award hospital partner, recognizing one of our nurses with this special honor every month.
