Sleep health becomes an important component of global public health. The incidence of sleep disorders is increasing rapidly worldwide, which seriously affects people's quality of life. In China, the lack of professional sleep physicians and technicians, the distribution of sleep centers and the unbalanced development of medical resources have seriously restricted the development of sleep medicine and the improvement of sleep health guarantee level. In Europe and America and other developed countries, sleep medicine has become a new interdisciplinary discipline. The development of nurses as sleep coordinator has become an irresistible trend. Nurses have been trained to become the main force of sleep technicians. These successful attempts in the field of sleep medicine provide reference for promoting the development of nursing care in China from the aspects of medical care, teaching and research.
