THE DAISY FOUNDATION
Celebrating nursing excellence
Propelus™ is proud to join the DAISY Foundation™ to spotlight the compassion and positive impact within the nursing profession.
The Heart and Soul of Healthcare
In the U.S., more than 5.2 million nurses play a vital role in promoting the well-being and resilience of our communities, while delivering comfort and support across the continuum of care. They often commit long hours, sacrifice precious time with loved ones, and provide unwavering optimism during difficult times. Yet their work is often taken for granted.
The DAISY Foundation: Thanking nurses for 20+ years
The DAISY Foundation was established in memory of J. Patrick Barnes in 1999. As the family came to terms with Patrick’s diagnosis, they were continually impressed by the kindness and compassion shown to their son by staff nurses. Recognizing that nurses often serve as the unsung heroes of healthcare, the family created The DAISY Award® for Extraordinary Nurses to honor nurses who provide extraordinary compassionate care.
Since then, more than 200,000 nurses around the world have been honored with the DAISY award in recognition of their dedication and hard work.
The DAISY Foundation is delighted to partner with Propelus and promote our shared values around celebrating nurses who are making a difference in patients' lives,” said Deb Zimmerman, DAISY Foundation CEO. “We were impressed by the company's technology and connections with licensing boards, education providers, and licensed professionals to ease the workload burden for nurses. We are excited to work with Propelus to uncover even more opportunities to say ‘thank you’ to nurses and help them renew their commitment to the profession.
