The Swedish Society of Nursing is the professional society that brings registered nurses together on professional issues. The society was founded in 1910 and has since then been the arena and meeting place for clinical, educational, scientific and ethical discussions and decisions regarding nursing. Swedish Society of Nursing has about 70.000 members. More than 50 different organizations for specialist nurses are associated to Swedish Society of Nursing http://www.swenurse.se/in-english/

The society has for several years been working to implement the six core competencies in teaching as well as in daily care. We are pleased for the great and unique opportunity to collaborate with Professor Jane Barnsteiner and Professor Joanne Disch in supporting the implementation in a Swedish context.

Some good examples of ripple effects:
