The House of Nurses
The Swedish Society of Nursing resides in the House of Nurses. The building is filled with unique objects that serve as a reminder of the over 100-year history of the Society.
This brochure presents some of these objects, as well as taking the reader on a quick journey through the Society’s history. The point of departure is the book published to mark the Society’s 100 year anniversary in 2010, but also the series of portraits of its presidents that adorn the walls of the boardroom on the top floor. The portrait collection is unique, because how many boardrooms only have portraits of women?
For a long time the Society was an organization managed by and for women with a succession of strong women at the helm, which is why it has played a very important role in Swedish history.
