Course: Advanced Healthcare Communication

The nursing workforce is shrinking and as our baby boomer generation ages and the demand for healthcare services increases, we will likely see an increased number of nurses that have been born and trained outside the United States, being hired to work in our physician practices, hospitals and nursing homes. This 3-module program orients the foreign-educated nurse or nursing assistant in the critical elements of US healthcare communication. We cover advanced communication skills, relating with others and US health system perspectives. We can work with your organization to offer this on-site or individuals may attend regularly scheduled sessions in our location.

 

Course: Dual Role Interpreters

Many organizations look to bilingual individuals to help bridge the communication gap.  While this effort is very much a step forward, these bilingual workers need to be given tools in order to succeed as interpreters. We offer the specialized training that you need in order to improve communication and to help your institution comply with Federal and State standards.
