Congratulations! You have joined a worldwide community of the most amazing nurses, nursing faculty and students. You are the epitome of nursing's unique blend of art and science. Here is some important information for you, as well as a list of your benefits as a DAISY Honoree. Please be sure an insert like the one depicted below is in your DAISY gift bag.
The key to all your Honoree Benefits: Getting Registered with The DAISY Foundation so we may add your name, photo and story to our website (www.DAISYfoundation.org)
Please remind your DAISY Coordinator to register you on our website. He or she will log in to our Resource Center and and complete the Registration Form for you, uploading your photo and nomination story.
Once you are registered, we will create your DAISY Spotlight page (see example below). Your DAISY Coordinator will receive the DAISY Spotlight link and share with you. Or you can easily search your name in the search box on www.DAISYfoundation.org, where you will find your picture and story.

NEW! Medical Mission Grants
Many nurses serve on medical missions, often using vacation time and funding the trip themselves. DAISY wants to help! Each year, DAISY Honorees can apply for a medical mission grant. 10 grants of up to $1,500 each will be awarded to encourage nurses who have demonstrated extraordinary compassion in daily practice to contribute to patient care for the world’s most underserved and vulnerable people. The first recipients of our inaugural effort were notified in March, 2019! The next application period will be in the fall of 2020. Learn more here.
