Professional nursing care plays an important role in the process of medical treatment that requires the close collaboration among multiple disciplines. Nursing care needs to match the level of medical treatment to achieve the best patient diagnosis and treatment results. Nursing is an occupation demanding both care and professional skills. Carrying out nursing cooperation based on Health Alliance is an innovation to promote the development of nursing in the Health Alliance reform pilot, and also an assurance to push forward the hierarchical medical diagnosis and treatment system and Health Alliance. The new economic and medical treatment and health situation have put forward new requirements on the quantity, quality and specialization of nursing. Besides, nursing has unique advantage and occupational properties in terms of disease prevention, chronic disease management, health education and counseling. Therefore, the hospital proposed to establish the Nursing Alliance of China-Japan Friendship Hospital (CJFH)’s Specialized Medical Clusters.

A solid foundation has been laid for the development of nursing at CJFH. The department of nursing at the hospital has been listed as a “Key Clinical Specialty in the Country”. Madam Li Xiuhua, who served as the 25th and 26th chair of the CNA and was honored as the 46th Nightingale medal winner, works as the honorary director of nursing after she retired as the director.

It is home to a practice base of clinical nursing for well-known institutions including the Peking University. With its access to 12 training bases for nursing specialists under the CNA and the Beijing Nursing Association, the department has trained over 230 nursing specialists in 12 specialties.
