Background & Aim: For the nursing bachelor's degree to be more successful in Iran and to identify the strengths and weaknesses of its curriculum, it is necessary to conduct comparative studies and benefit from the experiences and strategies experienced in successful universities. This study aimed to compare the Iranian undergraduate nursing curriculum with the University of Manchester, UK.
Material & Methods: The present study is a comparative descriptive study that was performed using George Brady four-step model including description, interpretation, proximity, and comparison. The details provided from the Iranian bachelor's nursing curriculum are taken from the website of the Ministry of Health in Iran and the University of Manchester.
Results: In the field of goals and mission in Iran, courses, content and educational methods are different from Manchester. The philosophy is more clearly expressed in the Manchester curriculum. In terms of student admission, both are different. Curriculum content in Iran is somewhat inconsistent between the courses offered and their content with educational goals. While at the University of Manchester, the content of the curriculum is selected, organized and compiled in such a way that the goals of the curriculum are realized. Examining and comparing expected job positions for nursing experts is different from Iran.
Conclusion: The comparison of the nursing education system of Iran and England showed that the education system of our country has weak and strong points. It seems that using the experiences of this country and its indigenization will help to improve the nursing education system of Iran.
