Nominated for Daisy Award :)

  1. 17
    Yesterday at work, I checked my mail box and found a large envelope. I opened it and to my complete surprise, I found that I was nominated by a recent patient for the Daisy Award!
    I am a new grad and have only been an RN since February on the medical unit at my hospital.
    I showed the letter to my NM and she said that I should be very proud to be nominated so early in my career.

    I guess "proud" wouldn't be the right word for how I feel though. I am very humbled and it actually brought tears to my eyes when I read the nice things that the patient had written about me. It makes my heart happy to know that I made a difference in someone's life. After all, isn't that what nursing is all about?

    Being a Daisy nominee just encourages me to strive to do my best every day to be a great patient advocate.
    Just had to share my little "feel good moment."

    I also wanted to say how much I love AN. I've learned so much from so many people on this site!

    Congratulations... watch your back.
    I received an award....The jealousy came from everywhere, escalated to lateral violence.
    (yes I WAS humble).
    The plaque burned beautifully in my fire pit.

    Well you know we students...1 semester of school and we like know it all (kidding) I actually first learned about it from being a member of the Assembly of Men in Nursing Association. Apparently many male nurses have received the Daisy award.
