One student described Lyman as fully invested in bettering healthcare through both improving the hospital system in his research and molding compassionate nurses in his teaching.

The DAISY Award for Nursing Faculty is given to a faculty member at the BYU College of Nursing twice a year. Assistant professor Dr. Bret Lyman was nominated and selected to receive the award this fall semester. He teaches the capstone course and the undergraduate ethics course. Students are profoundly impacted by his dedication to truly learning the Healer's art and teaching that to his pupils.
In the nomination, one student described Lyman as fully invested in bettering healthcare through both improving the hospital system in his research and molding compassionate nurses in his teaching. The student told the story of how during their capstone semester, his or her financial aid fell through and he or she became homeless. The student described Lyman's compassionate service in how he took the time to listen and was able to connect with the college to find resources so the student could finish. That was when this student really understood that Dr. Lyman cares about the success of his students and teaching is not just a job for him.
