Every quarter, PassportUSA’s DAISY award committee selects one of our working nurses to be recognized for their excellence in nursing practice. Our committee receives numerous nurse nominations from recognitions that are shared with PassportUSA’s International Employee Supervisors team. The committee then selects one nurse that has gone above and beyond his/her duties.
Other award winners and nominations featured here are from patients, managers, and facilities. We are proud of you all!
Our nursing managers, Donita and Christy, coordinate with the hospital to fly in and present the portfolio award and hand-carved serpentine statue to the RN, along with his/her unit there to all celebrate and PassportUSA provides Cinnabons for the entire unit!!
The DAISY award is a prestigious award and every RN that receives it stands out for his/her positive initiatives in consistently helping patients, teammates, and for loving what he/she does!

Janine is currently working in Pennsylvania. She is being recognized for the Q1 DAISY award for her critical thinking and teamwork. PassportUSA recognizes Janine for living out her dream and role modeling all the qualities and attributes that are associated with an excellent nurse. She is a shining example of professionalism, teamwork, dedication and compassion. We learned from Janine that she had been involved in a situation where her critical thinking and quick response time was key to the total team efforts to resuscitate a resident.
"She was outstanding. She helped me all night. Very sweet bedside manners. She couldn't do enough for me." -Patient
"All I can say is she was awesome in every way! I was treated with respect. Always checking in to see if I was okay or needed anything. Not just one time but every time. She was an angel sent from heaven. Always with a smile on her face. With me I feel she went above and beyond her duty as a nurse. When I was in pain she held my hand. And just her kind expression of love just came shining through. Until you have been there knowing if what the doctor was doing didn't work and you would have to have surgery next is really scary. A smile and kind touch means so much to you. I would take her home with me if I could." -Joan
"She had good advice. Always smiling she was very prompt. Best asset ever to this hospital. Great nurse." -Lisa
"Mike is an excellent example of what all people in the nursing field should strive to be. His professionalism and compassion for my father truly impressed me. No matter what we asked of him, he quickly did it or got whatever my father needed. My dad had many fantastic nurses, but Michael was very special. His ever present smile was greatly appreciated, not only by my father, but by myself and my mother. This young man is a DAISY award winner just waiting to happen. There was no single situation, but his daily pleasant disposition that made our worst days more pleasurable. This nurse will touch many lives and help speed many to recovery. He is a most deserving recipient of the DAISY award. Congratulations."
"April went above and beyond for not only my child's needs but she was so comforting to me while I had mini meltdowns. She got me to smile a few times. I feel she was in the room checking on him and always kept me informed on what was going on. I really needed a nurse like April today. She was just absolutely marvelous! If my son could talk, I'm sure he would smile and babble!"
