DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem. The DAISY Foundation was formed in November, 1999, by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died at age 33 of complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP). The nursing care Patrick received when hospitalized profoundly touched his family and thus they created the DAISY award to recognize nurses for their above-and-beyond care and compassion.
Each year the School of Nursing awards 1 faculty member the DAISY award and recognizes 2 graduating students to receive the DAISY in Training award.
Please make your nominations for either award through the links below. Paper nomination forms are available in the Academic Affairs office.
