The DAISY Award

Daisy Award icon

The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses recognizes the super-human work nurses do every day. The award was established by the DAISY Foundation, a foundation for the elimination of Diseases Attacking the Immune System in memory of J. Patrick Barnes.

Mr. Barnes' parents established the foundation in Patrick's memory, because they had experienced first-hand the skills as well as the caring and compassion of many nurses.

The Award is given monthly to an outstanding nurse in hospitals across America.
