In a nation where 35.5 million people identify Spanish as their primary language, it’s no wonder that bilingual healthcare workers are valuable entities. The ability to speak Spanish is a resume booster, and may be the skill that would make a hiring hospital choose you over the competition. Kaplan’s Spanish for Nurses by Rudy Valenzuela, RN is a priceless tool for those who need a brush up in the Spanish language. It has a review of basic Spanish (numbers, days of the week, family members, etc) and chapters including:
Review of the systems
Diagnostic tests
Nursing interventions
In the emergency room
In the maternity ward
