Award Information

  • The DAISY Award for extraordinary nurses recognizes the superhuman work nurses do every day.

    The award was established by the DAISY Foundation, which focuses on the elimination of diseases attacking the immune system. It was set up in memory of J. Patrick Barnes by his parents.

    Each quarter, the award is given to six outstanding registered nurses at Seattle Children's. The winners are nurses whom patients and families as well as the members of the interdisciplinary team (nurses, physicians, nutritionists, social workers and other staff) recognize as outstanding role models.

    About the DAISY Nurse Leader Award

    The DAISY Nurse Leader Award recognizes all the “right” that nurses do, and compassionate leadership is indeed “right.” With a DAISY recognition program for nurse leaders, we put a public spotlight on the impact their unique brand of leadership has on their staff and the patient care they manage.

    Each quarter, the award is given to one outstanding nurse leader at Seattle Children’s. The winners are leaders whom patients, families, and staff members recognize as outstanding leaders, including managers, directors, educators, chief nursing officers, preceptors, informatics nurses, etc.
