[Correspondence] Dilemmas for nurses in China

May 12 was the 107th International Nurses Day, with a theme of “Nursing: a voice to lead”, that aims to highlight the crucial role of nurses in the development of the healthcare system. Currently, the shortage of well trained nurses is a widespread problem in China. After years of health-care reform, the number of registered nurses in China has risen from 2·04 million in 2010 to nearly 3·5 million by the end of 2016. Although the number of nurses per thousand people in China rose from 1·52 in 2010 to 2·54 in 2016, this number is still lower than the international average of four to five per thousand people.
