A short self-study or classroom course (40-60 hours) for nurses who need to use English in the workplace.
Cambridge English for Nursing is designed to improve the communication skills and specialist English language knowledge of healthcare professionals, enabling them to work more confidently and effectively.
With an emphasis on listening and speaking, the ten standalone units cover core areas of nursing such as patient admission, taking medical specimens, patient handover, post-operation assessment and discharge planning. Authentic tasks and activities based on everyday nursing scenarios - from dealing with patients in pain to discussing lifestyle changes - make the course relevant and motivating.
The course also features online activities which focus on the latest advances in nursing technology. These help to keep nurses up-to-date and confident when faced with unfamiliar equipment in new environments.
This course requires no specialist knowledge on the part of the teacher as comprehensive teacher's notes are available online. It is also ideal for self-study for busy healthcare professionals who may not have time to attend a teacher-led programme.
