2022 DAISY Award Recipients


Daisy Extraordinary Nursing Student Award

Congratulations to College of Nursing student Robyn Wilson, on receiving the 2022 DAISY Extraordinary Nursing Student Award!

Nominated by Dr. Marsha Hartline: Robyn is an exceptional nursing student. She performs well in the classroom and in the clinical setting.  She is responsible, accountable and displays a level of maturity beyond her years.  Robyn interacts easily with patients showing them kindness and empathy while thinking critically and providing compassionate patient care. Robyn is very thorough, detailed oriented and strives for excellence in all she does.  She works hard to ensure she is learning and looks for opportunities to expand her knowledge.  She is extremely motivated and a great team member to her fellow students.  Robyn also strives to make an impact in the community through her many service and volunteer activities. I have witnessed, first-hand, Robyn’s ability to connect with patients.  Her sweet demeanor, empathetic and compassionate nature, along with her keen sense of humor helps her establish a trusting relationship with all of her patients almost immediately. I nominate Robyn, not just for one patient encounter, but all patients encounters and find her very deserving of a DAISY student award.
