Daisy Awards

Fayetteville State University School of Nursing has some phenomenal faculty and students. 

The purpose of our program is to develop professional nurses that provide high quality healthcare in a variety of settings.  Have you recognized a faculty member that consistently goes over and beyond to ensure our overall mission is accomplished?  Have you taught a student that demonstrates resilience,
exceeds expectations in the classroom/clinical setting, and it extends into the community?  The DAISY Foundation created an award to provide colleges
and schools of nursing a national recognition program to show appreciation forfaculty and students.

What is the DAISY Faculty and DAISY in Training Award?

The DAISY Award Committee has the honor to accept nominations for outstanding service in nursing.  The DAISY Award was established to symbolize extraordinary compassion, leadership, and excellence within our profession.  We are fortunate to have the support from our Associate Dean, Dr. Arhin, to recognize 1 Faculty Member and 1 DAISY in Training each semester beginning December 8, 2017 at the Pinning Ceremony. 

What is the Award Criteria?

The DAISY in Training Award is designed to remind students, even on your hardest days in Nursing School, why you want to become a nurse.  By recognizing Nursing Students for the above-and-beyond care and compassion you show patients and their families as you are learning, we celebrate what it truly means to be a nurse.  Nominations should clearly convey how the student has demonstrated commitment to the nursing profession, advocated on behalf of patients, and upheld Jean Watson's conceptual framework that guides our program. 

The Faculty Award was created to recognize a faculty member that serves as a mentor, role model, and a person that inspires others.  This individual is a positive influence and motivates others and demonstrates enthusiasm for teaching, scholarship, and service.
