The DAISY Student Nurse Award is designed to remind students, even on the hardest days
in nursing school, why you want to be a nurse. By recognizing 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 families in their healthcare
experience and that makes great nurses truly great.
