This book helps nurses coming to work in the UK for the first time communicate with patients and staff. 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.
