Recognition of Nurses
Creating a culture of excellence requires that our nurses continually inspire and create a legacy that recognizes the essential role that nurses play in the healthcare arena. This past year many Lutheran nurses were recognized internally and externally for their dedicated work and achievements in the nursing profession.
Nurses are recognized internally and externally for the high quality and passionate care they provide:
Once every month, a nurse at Lutheran Medical Center is presented with the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nursing .

The award recognizes the superhuman efforts nurses perform every day . Lutheran is proud to partner with the DAISY Foundation as, together, we honor the skill, care and compassion that nurses continually provide to our patients.
The Nightingale Award for Excellence in Human Caring honors six outstanding Colorado Registered Nurses whose contributions to the profession of nursing epitomize the philosophy and passion of Florence Nightingale . These nurses are the motivators and visionaries who continually help redefine the profession of nursing . Lutheran Medical Center is proud to recognize the nurses on its team who are chosen annually as nominees for this prestigious award.
