DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nursing Students at LSUHNO School of Nursing

The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nursing Students ™ is designed to remind students, even on your hardest days in Nursing School, why you want to be 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. 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.
