The nonprofit DAISY Foundation established the national award program in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. Awestruck by the clinical skills and compassion of Patrick’s nurses, the Barnes family created the award to thank nurses across the nation who demonstrate society’s profound respect for the education, training, brainpower, skill and caring that nurses put into their daily work.
The Magnet Recognition Program is a recognition program operated by the American Nurses Credentialing Center that allows nurses to recognize nursing excellence in other nurses. It is considered the highest recognition for nursing excellence.
