Nominate Your Favorite Nurse

DAISY award nomination form

McLaren Greater Lansing is proud to have a group of nurses who are committed to providing expert compassionate care to every patient, every time. To recognize and thank those nurses who exemplify nursing excellence, nurses at McLaren Greater Lansing are now being honored with The DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses. The award is part of the DAISY Foundation's program to recognize the super-human efforts nurses perform everyday.

Each month, a nurse will be selected by McLaren Greater Lansing nursing administration to receive The DAISY Award.  At a presentation given in front of the nurse’s colleagues, physicians, patients, and visitors, the honoree will receive a certificate commending her or him for being an "Extraordinary Nurse."  The certificate reads: "In deep appreciation of all you do, who you are, and the incredibly meaningful difference you make in the lives of so many people."  The honoree will also be given a beautiful and meaningful sculpture called A Healer’s Touch, hand-carved by artists of the Shona Tribe in Africa.

To nominate your favorite nurse for the DAISY award, simply fill out the form below.
