In 2004, Mark and Ann Baiada created the BAYADA Awards for Technological Innovation in Nursing Education and Practice to recognize nurses who have made a significant contribution to nursing education or practice through the use of new technology. Drexel University's College of Nursing and Health Professionals and the Drexel University Nursing Education Institute (DUNEI) are proud to facilitate the award process.  

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 2016 award recipients will be presented at the BAYADA Home Health Care Speaker Series at the Drexel University College of Nursing and Health Professions on May 5, 2016. 

Submit nominations by March 14 by scrolling to the bottom of this link where the form can be downloaded.
