Some of our supportive associations implement DAISY Awards to recognize their members.
Black Nurses Rock (BNR)
In September of 2020 BNR became a supportive association of DAISY, where we mutually support each other’s missions and brainstorm on how we can work together. They also decided to implement the DAISY Award for Advancing Health Equity to recognize chapters across the country which Careismatic is funding. The first team award was in April 2021 to the Twin Cities chapter. They plan to give one team and one individual award out per year. Read the Twin Cities Chapter Nomination here (link to follow).
MONL-Missouri Organization of Nurse Leaders
The MONL DAISY Nurse Leader Award was established to recognize exceptional nursing leadership that demonstrates compassion and respect for the care frontline nurses provide. These leaders value celebrating the impact staff have on patients and their families and create an environment where compassion is valued and recognized.
DAISY partner organizations in Missouri can submit the previous year’s DAISY Nurse Leader Honorees to MONL who will select an annual recipient. The recipient is recognized at their annual conference, where they will receive a specially designed Healers Touch sculpture, certificate, and a one-year paid membership!
WLN-Wisconsin League for Nursing
The DAISY Nurse Leader Award for Extraordinary Nurse Educators was established in 2021 in collaboration with the Wisconsin League for Nursing (WLN) and The DAISY Foundation. The purpose of the Award is to recognize exceptional nursing mentors that exhibit, inspire and nurture compassion and respect amongst peers, mentees, students, or colleagues. These mentors directly influence learning in clinical practice/simulation and play a crucial role in the formation of exceptional frontline nurses. In turn, these mentors encourage frontline nurses or nursing students to exhibit acts of compassion and build relationships with patients and their families. This award recognizes that extraordinary nurse educators inspire and create exceptional nurses. This award is for eligible nurses who are completing work at Wisconsin DAISY Partner Institutions.
