An Introduction to British Nursing Culture

The nursing culture in Britain is renowned worldwide for its professionalism and high standards. However, if you come from a different nursing background, it can be a challenge to adapt to this unique system.

The team at “English for Nurses” (a network of overseas and British nurses) would like to share their experience with you! This course was written to help students to better understand the nursing system and the role of nurses in the UK.

During the course, students will learn about the history of nursing in the UK, the role of nurses, and the nursing hierarchy (i.e. who’s who). We will also discuss patient care, hospital documentation (e.g. care-plans, risk assessment and evaluation reports), how to use a drug chart, and the importance of communication skills within nursing. Later in the day, we take the time to explore career opportunities in UK nursing (and how to progress) and the special role of our overseas network.

Students will have plenty of opportunities to practice their language skills, learn useful phrases and expand their vocabulary to assist them in their everyday working life.
