San Joaquin Valley College Announces New Award Program for Nursing Students and Faculty
By: San Joaquin Valley College
The DAISY Awards, including The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nursing Faculty and The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nursing Students, have been adopted by healthcare facilities and educational institutions around the world to celebrate nurses for their extraordinary care and compassion.
Both nursing faculty and students at SJVC may be nominated by their colleagues, employers, patients, family, or alumni through an open nomination process. Award recipients will be chosen by a campus committee at least once a year with each Honoree receiving a certificate, a DAISY Award pin, and a beautiful sculpture called A Healer's Touch.
"At SJVC we have always believed in recognizing the outstanding contributions of our healthcare professionals including nursing students and educators," said President of SJVC, Nick Gomez. "In recognizing all their hard work and accomplishments, we can continue encouraging their success while also addressing the need for more of these healthcare heroes," added Gomez. "As part of this ongoing effort, we are proud to launch The DAISY Award program at our campuses in Visalia, Ontario, Bakersfield, Santa Maria and Rancho Mirage."
The non-profit DAISY Foundation is based in Glen Ellen, Calif., and was established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. The DAISY Foundation expanded its' flagship award program to academic institutions in order to recognize the faculty who inspire compassionate care in their students as well as the students who demonstrate it during their education.
