Vocabulary List for ESL Nursing STudents

Vocabulary List for ESL Nursing Students

This is a list of vocabulary words identified by Chinese students. My trip to China in December, 2003 was wonderful and helped me understand how energized and eager these students are to learn. This is just the beginning of a project I hope to design to assist as many ESL (English as a second language) who wish to improve their understanding of Nursing Language. While teaching a preparatory class to a group of nurses in China I began each class with the following format:

• Framework
• Nursing Process
• Roles of Nurses in America
• Differences in Practice between China and USA
• New concepts; Write one new learned topic, concept; idea; patient situation
• Memorable Vocabulary Words
Critical Thinking
• What do I know? What do I need to know?
• What’s significant about what I know?
• Many drugs in same category have same side effects. See p574-575 antihyperglycemics by mouth have same action. Insulin rapid acting; long acting
• Antihypertensives Anti-infectives: eg Ancef; keflex; Anti-inflammatory: p580
