Is a “Nerve” a cell or a tissue?


Nervous tissue includes Neurons and Glial cells. Neurons have soma and other projections (neurites) namely Axon and Dendrites. Axon or dendrites of a nerve cell covered with endoneurium is called nerve fibre, a bundle of nerve fibres covered by perineurium is called nerve fasciculus, many nerve fasciculi covered by epineurium form the "nerve". Is the "nerve", which is present in the PNS, will be regarded as a tissue or a cell?
