The development of nursing education in a country is usually affected by its socio-economic status, cultural values, history, and political system. A series of dramatic political movements and events in China during the past one hundred years have significantly influenced the social system, education, people's life, and values. Accordingly, the development of nursing education in China was affected profoundly. The purpose of this paper is to review the history and current status of nursing education in China, and provide some bases for possible changes in nursing education system in the near future. The authors describe the circuitous history of nursing education in China. Elizabeth McKechnic, a nurse from the United States, founded the first nursing school in Shanghai in 1884. Since then, many hospitals and nursing schools were established. In 1922, Anna D. Wolf started the first bachelor degree of science in nursing program in Peking Union Medical College (PUMC). However, in 1952, the collegiate nursing education in China was stopped because of the breakdown of relationship between China and America. Furthermore, all the nursing education ceased during the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976). Since 1976, China has reopened to the West, and nursing education in China has begun to revitalize.
