Nominations are open for the 2020 BNRF Inaugural DAISY Chapter Award!

During September 2020, the DAISY Foundation welcomed the Black Nurses Rock Foundation to The DAISY Community of Supportive Associations. We believe our partnership is a perfect fit to mutually support health equity initiatives including recognizing nurses around the world who deliver compassionate care to the most vulnerable communities.

Traditionally, the DAISY award is given to nurses internally within hospitals and the health care system. As part of a new pilot program to recognize excellence in nursing in our local communities, we are happy to officially open nominations for the 2020 BNRF Inaugural DAISY Chapter Award!
