The nursing world has shifted attention from the Year of the Nurse and Midwife to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year was going to be the time to celebrate the work of nurses and midwives internationally. Who could have imagined the critical importance of nurses would be brought into focus by the COVID-19 pandemic?
When the World Health Organization designated 2020 — the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth — as the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, we were thrilled. Of course, we at The DAISY Foundation are among the nursing profession’s most ardent cheerleaders.
We introduced The DAISY Team Award in 2013, and it has been a great addition to our statement of gratitude to nurses. The award celebrates teams, led by nurses, doing extraordinary things for patients and their families. Do you know a great team that deserves an award?
We introduced a team DAISY Award in 2013, and it has been a great addition to our statement of gratitude to nurses. Its acceptance is due, in part, to the increased emphasis in healthcare on interprofessional teams.
In addition to expressing gratitude to nurses by recognizing compassionate care, The DAISY Foundation helps fund nursing research and evidence-based practice projects. Apply today!
