On December 23, in conjunction with Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden’s birthday, we announced the new Queen Silvia Nursing Award 2018 scholars! Congratulations to Sara Nyström from Sweden, Maiju Björkqvist from Finland, Paulina Pergoł from Poland and Annette Löser from Germany (from left to right)!
These four nursing students will be awarded a scholarship of approximately 6000 euros in addition to a unique internship programme. During the internship, the scholars will have the opportunity to learn about healthcare and elderly care from various viewpoints, both in their home country as well as in an international environment.
The scholars have been chosen through a selection process where nursing students from all over Finland, Germany, Poland and Sweden sent in ideas on innovations to improve the care of the elderly. The breakdown of the number of participants and ideas from each country can be found below
