Helping to bring the DAISY Award Program to my institution has been one of the highlights of my time on the Professional Nurse Council. I feel so blessed to have been a part of the recognition and celebration of so many of my colleagues and the extraordinary work they do everyday. The winners of the DAISY Award are truly an inspiration to their colleagues, their patients and families, their managers, and to myself. Watching the connections between nurse and patient/family while at the DAISY Award Presentation is so humbling and rewarding, it really is what the profession is all about. I love connecting the nurse and the patient once again and knowing that I have helped facilitate and create this special moment for them. Thank you DAISY Award Foundation!
