Kathy Phillips NOC Daisy Award finalist 2024

Northern Oklahoma College Nursing faculty members will be honored with The DAISY Award® for Extraordinary Nursing Faculty at the NOC 2024 Nurses’ Pinning Ceremony Friday, May 3 at the Kinzer Performing Arts Center in NOC Tonkawa at 7 p.m.

One of the four finalist is NOC Nursing Instructor Kathy Phillips.

Phillips graduated from Oklahoma State University with a Bachelor of Science, University of Central Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, and then the University of Oklahoma with a Masters in Nursing Education.

“I worked in the legal field until I decided to make a change into nursing,” Phillips said. “I started nursing career at SMC on the medical-surgical unit as staff RN and eventually transferred to ICU as staff RN. I accepted position of critical care educator and decided to obtain a Master’s Degree. Once I obtained graduate degree, I accepted position to teach at NOC to educate the next generation of nurses.”

The award is part of The DAISY Foundation’s mission to express gratitude to nurses with programs that recognize them for the extraordinary, compassionate and skillful care they provide patients and families.

DAISY Award recognitions honor the super-human work nurses do for patients and families every day wherever they practice, in whatever role they serve, and throughout their careers – from Nursing Student through Lifetime Achievement in Nursing.
