The SwedishAmerican Foundation’s Swedes’ Night (formerly known as Cruise) was a huge success with more than 450 supporters in attendance. The event, held on March 3 at Giovanni’s, raised more than $170,000.
On Thursday, March 8, ten nursing students and three instructors from the De la Gardiegymnasiet upper secondary school in Lidköping, Sweden, will arrive in Rockford for a fourteen day visit. The students will do clinical work and shadow both nurses and physicians at SwedishAmerican Hospital and also learn about the Rockford community by participating in classes at Guilford High School, stay with local host families and visit the Swedish Historical Society´s Erlander Home Museum. This is the sixth year SwedishAmerican has hosted nursing students from Sweden.
