About The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nursing Students
Reminding nursing students, even on their hardest days in school, why they became a nurse.
Where to Start: Implementing The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nursing Students
The first step is to fill out our “request more information form." The DAISY Regional Program Director for your region will email you a letter of introduction that provides details on how to plan and implement the program, form a committee at your school, and the cost of participating. They will also be in touch to gauge your interest and set up a phone conference or webinar to answer your questions or provide additional information.
When you decide to move forward with our nursing student award, the next step is to fill out our online Commitment Form. This provides us with main points of contact at your school, frequency of award, estimated start date, and everything else we need to enroll you in the program. Once we receive this form:
We will email you the login and password to our online Resource Center which contains an implementation guide, sample criteria, nomination form templates, marketing materials for your program, and much more.
Your DAISY Regional Program Director will be in touch to set up a date/time for a welcome webinar with your DAISY Committee who will be coordinating the award program.
An invoice for the first year of supplies will be emailed; once it’s paid we will ship your supplies for the year.
We look forward to partnering with you to honor your extraordinary nursing students!
