The DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses recognizes the compassionate care of extraordinary Registered Nurses (RN). It was established by the DAISY Foundation - a foundation for the elimination of Diseases Attacking the Immune System in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. The Barnes family established the foundation in their son Patrick's memory because they had experienced firsthand the skills, caring and compassion of many nurses. The award is given to recognize outstanding nurses at Arkansas Children's Hospital.
