Call for Nominations for the International 2012 BAYADA Award for Technological Innovation in Nursing Education and Practice. BAYADA Home Health Care announces the call for nominations for the international awards that recognize nurses who have made a significant contribution to nursing education or practice through the use of new technology.
The BAYADA Award for Technological Innovation in Nursing Education and Practice was created in 2004 by benefactors J. Mark Baiada, founder and president of BAYADA Home Health Care, his wife Ann Baiada, and his brother Mel Baiada. Drexel University’s College of Nursing and Health Professions and the Drexel University Nursing Education Institute (DUNEI) are proud to facilitate the award process.
BAYADA and Drexel leadership are dedicated to honoring innovative nurses who make vital contributions that improve student learning and patient outcomes. “We are committed to recognizing and rewarding those who set and maintain the highest standards of excellence,” said Mark Baiada. “It’s The BAYADA Way.”
Two $10,000 cash awards will be presented—one to a nurse educator whose technological innovation led to improved nursing education and student outcomes, and one to a practicing nurse whose technological innovation improved patient care outcomes. The technology must have been in use for six months or more at the time the application is submitted. Those who submitted applications in previous years but did not win may apply again if the technology is still in use.
The 2012 award recipients will be honored at the BAYADA Breakfast during the DUNEI conference on June 20 in Savannah, Georgia.
The deadline for applications is May 7, 2012, and all eligible candidates are encouraged to visit the Drexel University website for application instructions.
