English for Nurses Director Sabine Torgler’s New Blog Article for the RCN: ‘Heimat: Home Is Where Your Love Is, Home Is Where Your Profession Is’

It is with great pleasure that we can now share a blog article written for the RCN (Royal College of Nursing) by EfN director, Sabine Torgler:


It's a fascinating article in which English for Nurses Sabine describes her journey as an overseas nurse who made the life changing decision to move to the UK 21 years ago. It's a decision Sabine has never regretted. But, what's it like for a young nurse to change her home, her language, her entire nursing culture?


Here's a snippet from the article:


"As you can imagine, the difference blew me away. It took me a while to get my head around everything; not just the language barrier, literally EVERYTHING. The culture in NHS hospitals was so different from my home country. For example, there’s the transparency of the UK’s health system, working within a team, and standing up for – and being accountable for – all of my nursing actions. It really felt like I had landed on a different planet."


Please do have a read of the full article!
