China has become one of the most advanced and sought after medical education centers in the world. As a result, more and more nursing candidates are seeking to begin their education, and thereafter, their career, in China.

One of the most attractive aspects of gaining a nursing degree in China is that graduates are qualified to practice nursing in a range of other locations, including the USA, UK and Europe. The widely recognized nursing qualification in China makes entry to universities for medical training, very competitive. An advantage of gaining a nursing education in China, is that universities fees are somewhat lower than other nursing institutions across the globe, therefore making a nursing degree more accessible to those who are not wealthy. The reason for the lower fees is because the tutoring is subsidized by the Ministry of Public Health of the Chinese Government.

Becoming a Qualified Nurse

Typical qualifications of a nurse in china include three years of health school upon completion of around nine years primary and secondary schooling. Many senior high school candidates can qualify for a 2-3 year nursing course, which is testament to the 40,000 graduates nurses produced each year.

Obtaining a Bachelor’s in Nursing

To obtain a Bachelor’s degree in nursing will require candidates to study fulltime for a period of 5 years. Approximately 3,000 individuals graduate with a BA in nursing each year in china. The BA is the highest level of nursing qualification and is viewed as highly favorable amongst health institutions.

Master’s of Science in Nursing (MSN)

Graduates can progress further with their nursing education and gain a Master’s of Science in Nursing (MSN). This course takes 3 years to complete and is a full time course. Graduates who hold a Master of Science in Nursing typically move into high level management positions within the health care system.
