Congratulations to this year's nominees for the DAISY Award® for Extraordinary Nursing Faculty!
"Goldfarb is thrilled to partner with the DAISY Foundation to recognize the special faculty members who prepare our nursing workforce and inspire our students to ensure both the art and science of nursing are brought to every patient experience," says Mayola Rowser, Ph.D., DNP, FNP-BC, PMHNP, Jack Taylor Dean and Professor at Goldfarb.
The DAISY Award® for Extraordinary Nursing Faculty recognizes faculty members who go beyond simply teaching students. They exhibit grace, compassion and an unwavering commitment to education — they model what it means to be an exceptional nurse.
Over the past few years, nursing and nursing faculty have been on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our nominees demonstrated resilience and creativity as they adapted to virtual classrooms and navigated a precarious time, as instructors and individuals. This Award is a token of appreciation for their efforts in nurturing, inspiring and supporting Goldfarb students.
The DAISY Foundation began in 1999 when J. Patrick Barnes passed away after a battle with an auto-immune disease. To thank nurses like those who had cared for him, his family established the foundation and The DAISY Award, which recognizes nurses throughout the country. The DAISY Award® for Extraordinary Faculty was introduced in 2010.
"The DAISY Faculty Award celebrates the contributions faculty members make to teaching our next generation of nurses," Rowser says.
Please join us in congratulating this year's nominees. The winner will be announced at the Homecoming Celebration on September 23, 2022. The honoree will receive a certificate, a DAISY Award pin, and A Healer's Touch statue, hand-carved by artists of Zimbabwe's Shona Tribe.
