Between September 1 and November 1, 2021, the Queen Silvia Nursing Award will accept applications from nurses and nursing students with ideas to raise the quality of life and care for older people and people living with dementia. This is the ninth consecutive year of the Award. Applications are open to nurses and nursing students in Sweden, Finland, Poland, Germany, Lithuania, and the University of Washington School of Nursing.
The winner in each country receives a Euro 6000 scholarship and tailor-made learning and networking opportunities with partners associated with the program. Diplomas for the scholarship winners are traditionally presented by Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden at the Queen Silvia Nursing Award Grand Ceremony at the Royal Palace in Stockholm every spring (pandemic pending).
Over 20 Queen Silvia Nursing Award winners have been announced over the years. Last year’s awardees were Lisabet Lindbäck of Sweden, Inka Häkkinen of Finland, Radosław Romanek of Poland, Linda Smit of Germany, Karolina Adomavičiūtė of Lithuania and Brooke Tamble of the University of Washington School of Nursing.
