If you are involved in, or interested in the medical industry, then this course may be for you. English for Nursing is ideal for students who wish to study a Bachelor of Nursing degree, gain valuable work experience in an English speaking environment, and go for NZ Nursing Registration. It is also good for qualified nurses who want to work in the same job in English.
Nursing is one of the careers on New Zealand Immigration’s Long Term Skill Shortage list. Applicants who complete an NZQA-approved Bachelor of Nursing Programme and register as a comprehensive nurse in New Zealand are seen as desirable by the New Zealand government. Approval rates for NZIS’s visa applications are higher when applying to study nursing as it is a more attractive occupational target than many other careers.
The course is made up of General English, IELTS Exam preparation, and specific English for Nursing Modules. The Nursing English modules cover such subjects as Language of the Hospitals, the Healthcare System, Health and Disease, Medical and Anatomical Terminology, Patient Assessment, Diet, Elderly Care, Alternative Treatments, and Medication. We offer the course as a 24 week or 36 week programme. There are minimum entry requirements, so please be sure to contact the school for further information or click here to access our information sheet. The other important thing to note with this programme is that LSI Auckland students are permitted to work for up to 20 hours per week on their Student Visa, giving students the opportunity to find part time work during their stay in NZ.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us! We look forward to welcoming you to LSI Auckland.
