The DAISY Award

The DAISY Award® was created in memory of J. Patrick Barnes to honor extraordinary nursing faculty and students.

  • Want to say Thank You to Your Simulation, Lab, Clinical, or Course Nursing Instructor?
  • Would you like to recognize an Extraordinary Nursing Student?


We want you to share your story!

  • Tell us how your nursing instructor exemplifies the attributes of an exemplary educator, outstanding role model, and inspirational influence on their nursing students.
  • Talk about a nursing student who exemplifies exceptional compassion, advocacy, or leadership.
