Nurses Apply NOW – DAISY Foundation Grants
The DAISY Foundation (@DAISY4Nurses) was founded by the family of Patrick Barnes, after they experienced exceptional care at the hands of nurses while Patrick battled and succumbed to the auto-immune disease, ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura.) DAISY, which stands for diseases attacking the immune system, is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization started as a thank you to nurses for their dedication to their patients and their families.
The Foundation began with an award in 1999 – The DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses – and since then more than 3,000 facilities and schools representing all 50 states and 17 countries honor nurses with the DAISY Award.

The Foundation is also committed to funding grants with the help of the Get Well Network (@GetWellNetwork.) Both organizations are passionate about research to improve patient satisfaction and outcomes. The following grants are now accepting letters of intent: 2018 Research/EBP Grant Funding – Fall Cycle. To apply you must be a registered nurse with a current license. The research you are conduction must have an affect on patients (or their families) with an auto-immune disease or cancer.
