Shannon Brown, BSN, RN, is Bozeman Health’s newest Daisy Award-winning
nurse, one who “truly embodies the Daisy spirit in life and in her
work.” The Daisy award is an international program celebrating the
extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses every day.
Brown’s lifelong interest in helping people led to an adventurous
journey in becoming a nurse. She earned a BA in English and a Master’s
degree in journalism, and then spent time as a United Nations representative
in Austria providing HIV/AIDS education. Her quest for more knowledge
and the desire to make a greater difference in many lives led Brown to
pursue a nursing degree from an accelerated program.
Brown has been a nurse at Bozeman Health for four and a half years. She
spent her first two years on the medical floor, and has since worked in
the emergency department. According to her nomination, Brown “has
a thirst for knowledge and a passion for nursing that is evident to her
patients, co-workers, and supervisors.”
