Drexel University College of Nursing and Health Professions (CNHP) announced the fifth annual Bayada Award for Technological Innovation in Nursing Education and Practice. The award, sponsored by brothers Mel and Mark Baiada, recognizes the importance of incorporating technology in nursing for improved patient outcomes.
Two $5,000 cash awards will be presented: one to a nursing educator whose innovation leads to improved student clinical competency or efficiency of curriculum delivery, and one to a practicing nurse whose innovation leads to improved patient care. A blind judging will be performed with the judges considering the technology’s innovativeness and impact. The technology must be in use six months or longer. The application deadline is April 21, 2008. To apply for the award, visit: www.drexel.edu/cnhp/bayada/application.asp. Resubmissions from previous years are welcome.
