Nominate a DAISY Nurse Leader

Consider nominating an extraordinary OMC nurse leader.

The DAISY Nurse Leader Award recognizes extraordinary nurses in leadership roles. Despite working under tremendous pressure, nurse leaders provide a haven of safety for staff, both physically and emotionally. In this environment, nurses are inspired to do their very best by nurse leaders who role-model caring behaviors. These leaders provide a setting where compassion is valued, and staff, in turn, treat patients and their families with deep humanity. Leading by example, encouraging and developing others, and engaging staff while maintain a positive outlook are valued qualities among our nursing leaders.

OMC’s DAISY committee is accepting nominations for extraordinary Nurse Leaders. Any OMC employee may submit a nomination using the form below.

Nomination deadline is Saturday, December 3 by 5 p.m.

Nurse leaders eligible to be nominated include our CNO, Directors, Managers, Assistant Managers, Educators and Supervisors.


When submitting a nomination, please include examples of how your nurse leader nominee exhibits the following leadership qualities:

L – Leads by example; is visibly present to those they lead; transformational leadership style; flexible nature that induces positive change; uses deep listening, self-knowledge and fairness as cornerstones of a flexible management style; helps grow other leaders.

E – Encouraging; keeps others’ spirits up; strong power skills – intuitive in noticing when something or someone is not alright.

A – Asks for our best; inspirational; models nursing professionalism; decisions consistently demonstrate a patient centric perspective.

D – Develops others; doesn’t tell people what to do but rather gives people the opportunity to be involved in forming their work and providing input; knows how and when to delegate to empower staff; dedicated to excellence.

R – Resilient; maintains a positive outlook; able to see opportunities where others see barriers and challenges; remains calm in the midst of the storm; real with others, doesn’t pretend things are not difficult when they are but able to redirect our focus to our mission.
