Dear member of the Queen Silvia Nursing Award Network,

You have been invited to the very first QSNA Network Meeting since you are one of the alumni in this exclusive network. The official launch of the network will happen in conjunction to the QSNA Network Meeting in Stockholm, Sweden, on the 24th and 25th of September 2018.

The Network Meeting is an event for the network-members from all the QSNA-countries, where we meet to gain inspiration, develop our competence and find new contacts and friends from different countries.



The QSNA Network is an alumni association for previous scholars and finalists of the Queen Silvia Nursing Award, therefore, it is a network consisting of nurses and nursing students. The network will provide career support, development of competence-areas such as nursing and leadership, as well as fun activities to encourage new ideas, competence-exchange and building friendships within the network.
