English for Careers: Nursing
Nursing is suitable for trainee nurses, who are studying for a career in nursing, and for qualified nurses who are thinking of working in English-speaking countries, or have to deal with tourists. The course presents students with English from a variety of nursing fields, develops their communication skills, and provides background information in major medical and care concepts.
‘Body Bits’ focuses on a particular part or parts of the body, and extends students’ vocabulary for talking about the body and its functions. The ‘Signs and Symptoms’ section focuses on common diseases and conditions that are relevant to a specific unit. This provides students with the necessary vocabulary for describing common signs of illness.
Listening and speaking skills are particularly emphasised and practised in Nursing, as these are essential for relations with patients. The ‘Patient Care’ section teaches students how to convey instructions to patients and their relatives in a sympathetic and clear way, especially if dealing with sensitive matters.
The course supports teachers in the vocational teaching situation, providing them with specialist background information for the medical industry.
