Flyer English for Nursing Foundation

English for Nursing Foundation is for nursing students and professional nurses with an elementary or lower-intermediate level of English (A2-B1) who want to develop a strong foundation in profession-specific English language and communication skills.

English for Nursing Foundation includes sections on communicating with patients and colleagues, building medical terminology, describing symptoms, treatments and care, and using hospital-specific language, documents and forms.

The course develops your language in a wide range of common nursing scenarios, including patient admission, personal care, eating and drinking, mobility, pressure area care, treating pain, elderly care, falls and injuries, infection control, and mental health.

The course is image- and media-rich, with animated videos, audio with a range of accents, voice recording and playback, grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation sections, and a wide range of interactive tasks. It works seamlessly on all devices.

English for Nursing Foundation is accredited by the CPD Standards Office, whose professional qualifications are recognised throughout the world. You receive a CPD certificate on course completion.
