About Karen Daley
Karen Daley, Ph.D., RN, FAAN, served from 2010 to 2014 as the president of the American Nurses Association, the nation’s largest nursing organization representing the interests of the nation’s 3.1 million registered nurses. She is a current member of the Board of Trustees of the American Nurses Foundation and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and the Barnstable Land Trust.
Daley spent more than 25 years as a front-line caregiver and staff nurse at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) in Boston. She practiced for more than 22 years in the BWH emergency department until January of 1999 when she left due to a needlestick injury that resulted in her infection with both HIV and Hepatitis C. Since that time, she has been actively engaged in state, national and international levels as an advocate for use of safer needle devices in health care practice settings. Daley has traveled across the US as well as Europe, Australia, and Asia in her ongoing advocacy for sharps injury prevention. In recognition of her integral role in its passage, Daley was among those invited to the Oval Office to witness President Clinton sign the “Needlestick Safety Prevention Act” into law on November 6, 2000.
During her four-year tenure, Daley led and served as the spokesperson for the American Nurses Association, which represented the interests of 3.1M registered nurses. In 2011, while serving as ANA president, she was listed among Modern Healthcare’s “100 Most Influential People in Health Care” and, in 2013, was selected by Modern Healthcare as one of the “Top 25 Women in Healthcare.”
Daley holds a master’s in science, a master’s in public health, and a Ph.D. in nursing. She has been recognized with numerous awards for her outstanding leadership and excellence in practice. In 2015, she was awarded an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters by Rivier University in Nashua, New Hampshire, and Curry College In Milton.
