Goals & Guidelines
November 14th, 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the creation of The DAISY Foundation. We never imagined that DAISY recognition of nurses' extraordinary compassionate care would spread as far and as wide as it has, with over 3,600 healthcare organizations and schools of nursing in 22 countries committed to celebrating their nurses with us.

Inspiring Nurses to See the Extraordinary in their Ordinary
The DAISY Foundation and Creative Health Care Management came together because of a shared love of the work of nurses and a keen sense of the importance of nursing care to patient wellbeing. At the DAISY Foundation, we have long wondered why nurses have such a hard time seeing the full value of their work.
Millennial nurses appreciate meaningful recognition for patient care
Millennials, the generation born between 1982 and 2000, have surpassed baby boomers as the nation’s largest living generation, according to 2016 population estimates by the U.S. Census Bureau.
Inspire Extraordinary Care Through Nurse-Focused Recognition
In 1999, my 33-year-old stepson, Patrick Barnes, died of complications of ITP, an auto-immune disease. We spent eight weeks in the hospital with Patrick, experiencing the best of care from a team of nurses whose clinical skill and compassionate care touched us deeply.
“All We Wanted to Do Was Say, ‘Thank You.’”
About J. Patrick Barnes
One morning in late 1999, 33-year-old J. Patrick Barnes awoke to blood blisters in his mouth. The two-time survivor of Hodgkin’s Disease was quickly admitted to the hospital and diagnosed with Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a rare autoimmune disease that affects the blood’s ability to clot normally.
