    This book addresses the need for nurses to communicate effectively in English. Combining the essentials of communication with language learning, it provides all the necessary skills for professionals in healthcare. English for Nurses puts equal emphasis on all the four aspects of learning the language—listening, speaking, reading and writing through a variety of exercises and assessment modules. It provides plenty of practice in functional grammar and also for pronunciation and fluency in speaking.
