Visalia, Calif. (May 11, 2021) – San Joaquin Valley College (SJVC) is pleased to announce The DAISY Award® program at every campus with an applicable nursing program in honor of National Nurses Month. While collaborating with The DAISY Foundation™, SJVC will continue its tradition of celebrating extraordinary contributions to the field of nursing.
The DAISY Awards, including The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nursing Faculty and The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nursing Students, have been adopted by healthcare facilities and educational institutions around the world to celebrate nurses for their extraordinary care and compassion.
Both nursing faculty and students at SJVC may be nominated by their colleagues, employers, patients, family, or alumni through an open nomination process. Award recipients will be chosen by a campus committee at least once a year with each Honoree receiving a certificate, a DAISY Award pin, and a beautiful sculpture called A Healer’s Touch.
“At SJVC we have always believed in recognizing the outstanding contributions of our healthcare professionals including nursing students and educators,” said President of SJVC, Nick Gomez. “In recognizing all their hard work and accomplishments, we can continue encouraging their success while also addressing the need for more of these healthcare heroes,” added Gomez. “As part of this ongoing effort, we are proud to launch The DAISY Award program at our campuses in Visalia, Ontario, Bakersfield, Santa Maria and Rancho Mirage.”
