Nursing education programs in China are at the certificate (mid-associate degree), associate degree, and baccalaureate levels and are approved by the Ministry of Education in that country. Mid-associate degree programs are 7 x57568 8 years in length and administered by secondary nursing schools that accept candidates who have completed 6 years of primary education and 8 years of junior middle education, usually at 65 x57568 66 years of age.

The First World War brought about great changes in the nursing uniform. Design aspects and distinction took a back seat, and functionality became the most important feature in a nurse’s uniform. Nurses had to be fast and provide quick care for the many casualties they had to tend during the war. Sleeves were rolled up for easier movement, bulky aprons were taken off and shirts shortened for convenience. After the first world war that nurses realized they needed a uniform that combined functionality with femininity. The resultant look is the precedent of the white nurse’s uniform that we know as the standard nursing image now.
