Red Cross University College of Nursing

Röda Korsets Högskola (or Red Cross University College) is a Swedish institution for higher education operated by the The Red Cross Home Foundation. It is not to be confused with The Red Cross of Sweden. In addition to a degree in nursing, the institution also offers university courses related to the subject of nursing.

The "Red Cross Home Foundation" ("Stiftelsen Rödakorshemmet") was formed in 1925 to provide training for nurses under the auspices of the Red Cross in Sweden, and has drawn inspiration from the principals and values of the red cross. The Red Cross University College of Nursing (former Red Cross School of Nursing) is situated adjacent to The Royal Institute of Technology's main Campus in Stockholm.

The College building consists of the former south wing of the Red Cross Hospital, which was constructed in 1927, and which today houses the College Administration. In 2004 an ad joint building was constructed which houses the lecture halls, seminar rooms, a café and the College Library.
