Establishing and implementing of high quality nursing care for patients is the main objective of any nursing educational system. However, the lack of proficient nurses all over the world led to a competition and collaboration among countries to train as much nurses with high skills and knowledge as possible. This paper aims at studying and comparing two nursing educational systems of Iran and China. The results show that unlike many common aspects, the most significant similarity between these two systems is their educational paradigms that is concentrated on treatment of internal diseases and surgery with modeling the western bio-medical models, and the major difference is the validating the quality of nursing educational graduates in these two countries. In China, there is hold a national test to receive a certificate after graduation and before starting work as a nurse, but in Iran, there is no such program at the present. As a conclusion, we may use the two countries’ capabilities and educational experiences in order to improve the quality of nursing education in the other country, and hence, we may achieve the ultimate goal of nursing, i.e. providing nursing care with high quality to patients
