spn collaborative partners

SPN is the premiere organization for pediatric nursing, but just like in practice, we can’t do it alone. SPN partners with other key associations and organizations to bring pediatric nurses a wide range of educational opportunities as well as to spread the word about quality pediatric care from a nursing perspective.

Nursing Service Organization

SPN’s preferred insurance provider is the Nursing Service Organization (NSO). For over 40 years, NSO has been helping defend RNs, nurse practitioners, LPN/LVNs, CNSs, nursing aids and student nurses from medical malpractice lawsuits. Over 550,000 nursing professionals safeguard their careers with professional liability insurance through NSO.

Nursing Community Coalition

The Nursing Community Coalition includes 62 nursing organization members, including SPN, that are the cross section of education, practice, research, and regulation within the nursing profession.

The DAISY Foundation was created in 1999 to thank nurses for their compassionate patient care by the family of Patrick Barnes, a 33 year-old man, who died from the auto-immune disease idiopathic thrombocytopenia. The DAISY acronym signifies Diseases Attacking the Immune System. The foundation currently partners with more than 4,650 health care facilities and schools of nursing worldwide and is allied with major nursing organizations such as SPN. Over 1.9 million nurses have been nominated and more than 150,000 have received the DAISY Award.
