Versant® is dedicated to fundamentally improving patient outcomes by developing and taking care of nurses.  While best known for its work with new graduate nurses, Versant works with professional nursing organizations to address the needs of incumbent nurses as well as nurses who are transitioning into new areas of practice.   By integrating DAISY into its comprehensive, competency-based framework, Versant helps ensure that their residents learn the importance and impact of meaningful recognition early on, enhancing their focus on the well-being of the nurse and reinforcing the fact that compassionate care, in addition to great clinical skill, is a critical component of nursing excellence.
