“Barb and Christy emulate the spirit of the DAISY Faculty Award. They
both worked diligently to ensure that Capella received CCNE**
accreditation for the BSN, MSN (in 2011) and the DNP (in 2012),” said
Mary Bemker, RN, DSN, PsyS, director of Capella’s Nursing Department.
“Faculty are the backbone of Capella’s nursing program, and Christy and
Barb reflect the highest quality of our nursing department.”
Faculty Award was established by the DAISY Foundation as part of its
service to the nursing profession’s role in patient care in memory of J.
Patrick Barnes, who died of an auto-immune disease. The Foundation hopes
that, in some way, this program will contribute to a positive work
environment and encourage them to continue teaching.
