We would like to congratulate Michelle Ena for being honored together with her school, Novia University of Applied Science as the third Queen Silvia Nursing Award scholar in Helsinki, Finland on the 13th of March, 2017 at the Embassy of Sweden in Helsinki. Paula Risikko, Minister of the Interior, was also present to honor Miss Ena and to commemorate Novia University of Applied Sciences.
Queen Silvia Nursing Award was launched in Finland in 2014, and has been annually awarded to a nursing student that develops a fresh and relevant idea that helps further development of care for the elderly. This year the scholarship was granted to Michelle Ena for her easy to use wristband idea, which would support better management of patients by making it easier to monitor patients’ vital signs. 20-year-old Michelle Ena is from Kronoby and currently studies at Novia University of Applied Sciences in Vaasa, Finland.
