About the DAISY Foundation
The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died (at the age of 33) from complications of the autoimmune disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP). Patrick’s family was very touched by the remarkable compassion and clinical skill demonstrated by Patrick’s nurses during his illness, so they created DAISY to recognize exceptional nurses everywhere. The DAISY Foundation is dedicated to saying "thank you" to nurses and is now proud to recognize nursing students for their care of patients and their families.

About the DAISY In Training Award
The DAISY in Training Award™ is designed to remind students, even on the hardest days in nursing school, why they chose nursing as a profession. By recognizing nursing students for the above-and-beyond care and compassion shown to patients and their families, we celebrate what it truly means to be a nurse. We honor the nurse-patient connection that makes all the difference to patients and their families in their healthcare experience and that makes great nurses truly great.

About the DAISY Nursing Instructor Award
Many students talk about hearing a professor or instructor’s voice in the back of their heads even years after graduation. These dedicated nursing instructors often do not receive appropriate recognition for the effect they have on students, patient care and the nursing profession.
The DAISY Foundation, as part of its service to the nursing profession’s role in patient care, established The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nursing Instructors to provide colleges/schools of nursing a national recognition program they may use to demonstrate appreciation to their nursing instructors for their commitment and inspirational influence on their students.
