With the development of medical conditions, aging of social population problem is becoming increasingly serious in China. For one thing, the elderly often at risk of functional decline. For another, because the distribution of medical resources is still unbalanced, contradiction between the problem of medical care and the aging population is increasingly apparent. How to effectively integrate old-age care and medical resources to improve the quality of life of the elderly has become a hot issue. Therefore, we should make full use of big data and other technologies to speed up the training of TCM rehabilitation nursing students. In addition, it is of great practical significance for the realization of “supporting the aged” and “treating the sick” through the development of TCM characteristic medical and nursing institutions.
