Description

This book helps nurses coming to work in the UK for the first time to communicate with patients and staff. Covering a range of subjects, its main purpose is to explain colloquial language that patients might use but is not found in conventional dictionaries e.g. 'to spend a penny' or 'trouble with the waterworks'.
In addition to communication skills it contains practical advice on becoming registered, nursing in the UK and the organization of the health and social care team.

An extensive list of colloquialisms, phrasal verbs & idioms will enable the nurse to understand most of the informal language encountered in practice.
Practical information on getting on the UK register, the IELTS test & adaptation programs will help nurses to get jobs more quickly upon arrival.
Information about the organization of the NHS will help nurses to make sense of the health system and settle in more quickly.
Practical information on resources will help nurses tackle any organizational problems that they encounter.
