The DAISY in Training Award™

Daisy in Training 

The DAISY in Training Award™ is designed to remind students, even on the hardest days in nursing school, why they want to be a nurse.  By recognizing nursing students for the above-and-beyond care and compassion shown to patients and their families we celebrate what it truly means to be a nurse. We honor the nurse-patient connection that makes all the difference to patients and their families in their healthcare experience and that makes great nurses truly great.

TCU’s Harris College Baccalaureate Nursing Program is proud to be a DAISY In Training Award Partner, recognizing a student nurse with this special honor annually.



About The DAISY Foundation  

An acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System, The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died (at the age of 33) from complications of the auto-immune disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP).  Patrick’s family was very touched by the remarkable compassion and clinical skill demonstrated by Patrick’s nurses during his illness, so they created DAISY to recognize exceptional nurses everywhere. The DAISY Foundation is dedicated to saying thank you to nurses and is now proud to recognize nursing students for their care of patients and their families.
