Today we want to celebrate our second faculty recipient of The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nursing Faculty. The recipient is associate teaching professor Dr. Leslie Miles.
Leslie received entries from both undergraduate AND graduate students, all showing her level of compassion in nursing.
Kristen says, “She makes me feel so comfortable, and I can tell she cares about me individually as a person. While she’s dedicated to learning and research, I know she cares about me as a person more than anything else.”
Leslie’s love and dedication to her students make a huge difference in not only their academic performance but also in their day-to-day mental health.
Atalie states, “You can always count on Leslie for a listening ear. She’s one of those people that will always put a smile on your face and make you feel just a little happier.”
Another student writes, “Not only does she respect and embrace the differences of others, but she accepts her patients as strong individuals who fight difficult battles and deserve the best support.”
And Lauren shares, “In every sphere I’ve interacted with her she has been kind, optimistic, and devoted to those around her. I admire her ability to sit down with a patient, friend, or family and talk things out because she genuinely cares about others.”
The College of Nursing is pleased to present Dr. Leslie Miles with The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nursing Faculty.
