Celebrating Student Nurses for their Commitment to Compassionate Patient Care and for Outstanding Clinical Skill

The DAISY in Training Award TM is designed to remind students, even on the hardest days in nursing school, why you want to be a nurse.

By recognizing nursing students for the above-and-beyond care and compassion shown to patients and their families we celebrate what it truly means to be a nurse. We honor the nurse-patient connection that makes all the difference to patients and their families in their healthcare experience and that makes great nurses truly great.
