“I love the opportunity to recognize the amazing nurses we have here. Publicly rewarding stellar performance is the best way to encourage more of it, and it is meaningful for the nurses being recognized as well as their teams. I am very proud to be my organization's DAISY Coordinator and be part of their recognition.”

Jeri Gibbons, RN

“DAISY lets me pass on the compassion for our passion for our infant and families for what is innate for all nurses to the generations of nurses to come.”

Maria Gloria Dela Merced, RN, MN, MSN, CCRN, CEN, PCCN

"My 14 yr. old son shared a Maya Angelou quote with me - 'I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel' I love it!"

"Doctors treat, Nurses heal"

Karen Allen, RN, BSN, MSN, CNA

"When we work with the people we care about, while doing the work we love, our health improves. Nursing is a gift to the world of human caring.  The DAISY Award embraces that caring BACK to the passionate NURSE. That is what DAISY is all about to me - giving back!"
