It will assist non-EU nurses as they prepare for the English test and adaptation course necessary to practice. 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 & 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.
