We need lighthouses.
We need people and institutions who act as pioneers in driving progress forward and thus ignite the light tower so that we can face the great oncoming challenges in nursing.
(Prof. Dr. Elisabeth Seidl)

Dr.Elisabeth Seidl, pioneer of Austrian nursing science, fostered the development of nursing care and specifically the development of patient orientation as the director of nursing and the school at the Rudolfinerhaus for several years and as a scientist in her own right. For this reason the “The Elisabeth Seidl Prize”, which is set at € 1,000.– (category master’s thesis) and at € 500.–

(category bachelor’s thesis) will be awarded at the Rudolfinerhaus. The objective is to foster a new generation in nursing science. This prize is awarded to outstanding academic thesis papers in nursing care, especially those taking the patient’s perspective into account.
