    Daisy Award - Recognizing and Celebrating Nursing

    The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 by members of the Patrick Barnes’ family. Patrick was 33 years old when he died of an auto-immune disease. Despite their grief, his family was thankful for the extraordinary nursing care provided to him and them. During his eight-week illness in the hospital, they established the DAISY® award in Patrick’s honor. What started out as a thank you from their family to nurses has grown into a meaningful recognition program embraced by healthcare organizations around the world.

    Pathway to Excellence Journey 

    As we continue to advance nursing unification efforts across the system, Aspirus is on a journey with the American Nurse Credentialing Center (ANCC) nursing excellence designation program known as “Pathway to Excellence (PTE)”. The PTE framework identifies the elements of inter-professional work environments where nurses flourish and are empowered.  The PTE designation is granted based on the confirmed presence of the six PTE Practice Standards: Shared decision-making, Leadership, Safety, Quality, Well-being, and Professional development. Learn more about the Pathways to Excellence Program.

    In November of 2018, Aspirus Langlade Hospital announced their success of PTE designation following a 1.5-year journey. Aspirus is working on a systemwide timeline to achieve Pathway to Excellence designation.
