English for Nurses: Focusing on Patients.
Rodono, Eleonora Consoli
System, v12 n1 p43-51 1984
Discusses an experiment conducted with three classes of nursing students at Catania University Polyclinic (Italy) that attempted to find meaningful contexts for use in English as second language teaching curriculum (for nurses). By practicing dialogs typical of nurse-patient interactions in a hospital context, student nurses learned to interact with foreign patients, with foreign colleagues, and in other foreign contexts.
