July 2022 – The DAISY Foundation and the Association for Leadership Science in Nursing (ALSN) announced their mutual support today.
The DAISY Foundation is excited to welcome ALSN to the DAISY Community of Supportive Associations and believes this partnership will serve to expand the importance of nursing leaderships’ role in advancing scholarship practices which positively impact global health. Said Deb Zimmermann, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN, CEO of The DAISY Foundation, “We are delighted to partner with ALSN. Their commitment to evidence-based leadership and advancing global leadership science aligns with DAISY’s drive to grow meaningful recognition globally, advance the science demonstrating its impact on the work environment, and elevate the essential role of nursing leadership on nurse recognition.”
“We are excited to join the DAISY Foundation™ as a partner,” said ALSN’s President, K. David Bailey, PhD, MBA, RN, CCRN-K, NEA-BC, FACHE. “DAISY celebrates excellence at all levels of professional nursing practice. Through this partnership, both organizations will accentuate each other’s strengths and further illuminate the importance of nursing leaders and the affect they have on patient care and the work environment.”
About The DAISY Foundation
The DAISY Foundation is a not-for-profit organization, established in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, by members of his family. Patrick died at the age of 33 in late 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little known but not uncommon auto-immune disease. (DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System.) The care Patrick and his family received from Nurses while he was ill inspired the creation of The DAISY Award® for Extraordinary Nurses, an evidenced-based means of providing Nurse recognition and thanking Nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families.
In addition to the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses, the Foundation expresses gratitude to the nursing profession internationally in over 5,400 healthcare facilities and schools of nursing with recognition of direct care Nurses, Nurse-led Teams, Nurse Leaders, Nursing Faculty, Nursing Students, Lifetime Achievement in Nursing and through the J. Patrick Barnes Grants for Nursing Research and Evidence-Based Practice Projects, Health Equity Grants and Medical Mission Grants. More information is available at http://DAISYfoundation.org
ALSN, a not-for-profit organization, is an international nursing organization inviting and respecting the uniqueness of its members in advancing nursing leadership science. ALSN provides multifaceted opportunities for the generation, dissemination, and sustainability of nursing leadership science in education, research, and practice.
