FirstHealth of the Carolinas nurse Jennifer Downing, BSN, R.N. IV, CMSRN, has received the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. Downing is a nurse at Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst and she was nominated for this award by a coworker that she helped train. 


The DAISY Award was inspired by the exceptional care Barnes received from nurses and is the family’s way of thanking the hard working nurses that make a difference in so many lives. 


According to a press release, Downing’s coworker provided a glowing endorsement for her. “From the first day I met Jennifer, her knowledge and charisma empowered me. Jennifer was assigned to be my nursing preceptor and I could not be more thankful,” shared Madison Bullins, R.N., in her letter nominating Downing. “From our first shift together, she took me under her wing and made me feel as if I had known her my whole life. Jennifer taught me to be a great patient advocate, and she always ensures that the patient is first no matter the situation.”


The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses was created by the Daisy Foundation, a non-profit, based in Glen Ellen, California. After their family member, J. Patrick Barnes, passed away in his early thirties from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura the family started the Daisy Foundation.
