The DAISY Foundation
The company supports nurses by sponsoring the DAISY Foundation, which funds research by nurses and helps thousands of healthcare organizations in the U.S. and around the world to recognize the incredible work and sacrifice of nurses each year, through the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses.

Scrubs Media
Strategic Partners champions nurses and other healthcare professionals through Scrubs magazine, the world’s leading lifestyle media brand for nurses; our website, Scrubsmag.com; and scrubsBeat, a YouTube channel for nurses.

A Nurse I Am Film and Scholarship
Alarmed at the number of nurses leaving the profession within their first few years in practice, the company produced a film that would encourage, inspire and instruct nurses and nursing students. The resulting film, A Nurse I Am, was produced in two versions and is shown in 260 nursing schools.

Since 2007, Strategic Partners has awarded $156,000 to students in nursing school through the A Nurse I Am Scholarship. The application period for the scholarship runs November through February. For news and timely updates, refer to ANurseIAm.com.
