This year, the University of Washington School of Nursing was selected to be the Swedish Care International’s first academic partner in the United States to bestow the Queen Silvia Nursing Award for dementia care and research.
Created in honor of Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden, the award recognizes her long interest in and support of dementia nursing. Applications for this year’s award must include an idea or solution addressing COVID-19 challenges in the health care environment. Special consideration will be given to submissions that focus on the well-being of elderly and those living with dementia.
“It is an honor to help serve on this committee,” said Nelson. “At the Museum, we have had a long partnership with the University of Washington, working with them to produce many events at the Museum. We’re delighted to support their School of Nursing and bring attention to the excellence of the program in providing the next generation of caregivers.”
