Nurse alumna recipient of the Daisy Award

College of Nursing graduate, Noelle Ransom '11, is the recipient of the Daisy Award for Palmetto Health Baptist.

The DAISY Foundation was established a decade ago by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at the age of 33 from complications associated with Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (a disease that attacks the immune system, thus the DAISY acronym). One year later, the DAISY Foundation created The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses, which has come to be regarded nationally as one of the profession’s greatest honors. Richland began presenting DAISY Awards in 2009. Almost a year later, Baptist presented its first DAISY in July 2010.

Congratulations Noelle!
