  As one of the earliest courses of PKU Medicine, the teaching of nursing can be traced back to the related courses offered in August 1915 by the National Beijing Medical School (the predecessor of PKUHSC). In 1984, the nursing department of Beijing Medical University was set up and it took the lead in restoring higher education on nursing in the whole country. Now PKU nursing discipline is among the first to have entered the list of "Double First Class" disciplines.
