Daisy Award

Posted

Is that a pretty big deal to get the Daisy Award as a new graduate ICU nurse? Or average?

There is a big difference between being "nominated" and actually "being selected/ awarded" the Daisy award. I would say if you were the actual Daisy Nurse of the quarter or year that is above average.

If you'r looking for things to improve you'r resume certifications and certificates awarded after course work and an exam will look more impressive.

Patients/ families make the nominations but management chooses who to actually award it to. To be selected as a New Grad is huge. Well done, congratulations!
