Pocket Guides

The essential content from our original and most popular language course is now available as a pocket-sized reference for nurses and healthcare professionals to carry on hospital wards throughout the world. Featuring wipe-clean pages and measuring only 80 x 120mm, Pocket Guide is small in size but big on content. Each book includes 100 pages of key terminology, phrases and explanations for communicating professionally with your English-speaking patients.

Pocket Guide covers these 8 core elements of nursing:

  • Patient Admission
  • Basic Nursing Care
  • Respiratory Problems
  • Diabetes Care
  • Preoperative Care
  • Postoperative/Wound Care
  • Patient Discharge
  • Basic Anatomy

As with all our courses and learning aids, Pocket Guide is the direct result of many years of real experience working as an overseas nurse on English-speaking clinical wards.  Author and Director of English for Nurses, Sabine Torgler, fully understands the challenges and requirements when it comes to speaking English in a hospital setting.  The book is also based on feedback from hundreds of students from our English language workshops and courses.

Pocket Guide has been designed with the non-native English speaker in mind.  Each chapter is colour-coded, fully referenced and geared to allow nurses to find the required content as simply and quickly as possible – on the wards, when it really matters. The text is generously sized, clear and easily legible.

Initially, we will have 2 versions available. The first is for German-speakers and features German translations for some of the key English terminology. The second is an ‘International’ version, which is entirely in English.
