Nursing Quality Initiatives

  From the Chief Nursing Officer  

It’s true! As I walk through our hallways during my rounds and interact with nurses in meetings, I can see and hear the dedication to improving patients’ lives. WakeMed nurses are vigilant about patient safety and quality. WakeMed nurses are committed to service excellence. WakeMed nurses are constantly asking the question: “How can we do it better?”

WakeMed Nursing has experienced profound change in just the past few years. With our Magnet journey well underway, we are reaping the rewards of “stepping out of our silos” and learning from our peers throughout the entire health system. This interaction helps improve efficiency as well as patient outcomes and creates impactful, professional peer-to-peer relationships.

Relationships are also at the heart of our care delivery system, Patient and Family Centered Care and the WakeMed Nursing Professional Practice Model – CARES. By involving patients and families as partners with the care team, our nurses encourage open communication and glean key information to help provide a higher level of individualized care. In addition, we honor our relationships with other vital members of the WakeMed team who support Nursing’s efforts at the bedside and beyond.

This section highlights some of WakeMed Nursing’s endeavors during the past year. They are just a few reasons why I am proud to be a WakeMed nurse.

Daisy Award Nomination


This award recognizes the super-human work that nurses do every day. DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem. The DAISY Foundation was formed in January 2000 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died at age 33 of complications related to Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), an auto-immune disease. Patrick Barnes’ family vividly recalled the skillful and compassionate care from his nurses and wanted to say "thank you" to nurses everywhere by establishing The DAISY Award.

The DAISY Award is given monthly to an outstanding nurse at WakeMed.

Nominate a Nurse today.
