Career English for Nurses is specifically designed to help students of BSc Nursing attain the level of language proficiency required at the tertiary level, which would in turn enable them to communicate intelligibly and fluently in academic and clinical settings, and to perform a variety of language functions. The textbook is based on features common to English syllabuses of BSc Nursing programmes in different universities. It focuses on key aspects of pronunciation, general/medical vocabulary and grammar as well as on the language skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking.

Career English for Nurses is equally concerned with the understanding of the psychosocial dimensions of communication, which together with language awareness contributes significantly towards the building of good interpersonal skills. The methodology is a blend of communicative activities and traditional exercises, aimed at developing both language fluency and accuracy. The book includes exercises that could be used not only as effective remedial tools but also for the development of valuable study skills, for the enhancement of reading speed, and for practice in language use and usage. The activities and organisational patterns in the book have been planned so as to nurture self-confidence, creativity, motivation and cooperation among students.
