English for Nurses is an application- oriented text meant for nurses and healthcare professionals who want to enhance their English language capabilities. With its focus on the language and communication skills needed in professional and social situations, the book attempts to enable these professionals to carry out their duties more effectively and with greater confidence. This book emphasises on the essential element of language listening, speaking, reading and writing, dealing with non-verbal communication, and intercultural communication. It also trains the reader on how to handle (sometimes delicately) a variety of situation from taking a patient's medical history to managing postoperative care, as well as on responding to the needs and concerns of attendants with empathy.
