The Queen Silvia Nursing Award is a scholarship given annually to nursing students in Sweden, Finland, Poland, and Germany. The scholarship was established in Sweden in 2013 as a gift to Her Majesty Queen Silvia.

The recipient of Queen Silvia Nursing Award is rewarded with a scholarship of Euros 6000 in addition to a unique, individually tailored internship program. During the internship, the scholar has an opportunity to learn about healthcare and care of the elderly from various perspectives.

This year’s ceremony was held at the Royal Palace of Stockholm on April 2.

Queen Silvia Nursing Award is proud to announce its new partners Vironova and Attendo.
