 History

Administered by Kerman Province Department of Health (Behdari), Razi School of Nursing and Midwifery began operation in 1962, by accepting 18 students in Bachelor of Science in Nursing, with the first group of students graduating in 1965. Starting from 1982, as the title was changed from ‘Institute’ to ‘Educational and Research Complex’, the school accepted associate degree students in majors of nursing, midwifery, anesthesiology, operating room, public health, and radiology as well as the one-year program of health assistantship (Behyari). The title was once again changed in 1983, this time to Razi School of Nursing and Midwifery, accepting discontinuous B.Sc. in nursing since 1985, and discontinuous B.Sc. in midwifery since 1986. The other pertaining majors were transferred to the Medical School, by 1986. Students were admitted into self-supporting B.Sc. since 1991 and discontinuous B.Sc. in nursing since 1999. The graduate studies admissions commenced in 1990, and extend to present, followed by admission in PhD in nursing and associate degree in Emergency Medical Service, from 2006.
