In both China and the UK, the critical role of nurses in health services is increasingly recognised. Nurses can have a transformative impact on patient care through evidence-based practice.
The Nanjing Health School Collaboration, one of the major Sino-British collaborations announced during the visit of President Xi Jinping in October 2015, is built around world-class education and best practice in nursing.
As the UK’s number one nursing school, the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery & Palliative Care at King’s was chosen by the Nanjing Health School to work together on this ground-breaking collaboration in nursing education, sharing best practice and providing staff and student exchange opportunities.
The five-year long project, which began in December 2015, will see King’s providing consultancy, education and training to help build the Nanjing healthcare workforce, and establish a major new Nanjing Nightingale Nursing College.
