EfN Podcast Episode 8: The Beautiful and Varied World of Nursing

Sabine Torgler, director of English for Nurses, continues her monthly podcast series with a brand new episode! The podcast series deals with a variety of topics surrounding nursing, overseas nursing, and other important issues in the world of nursing today. Each episode will be available to listen to exclusively via our website. We hope to make the series available through other channels in the future.

In the eighth episode, Sabine talks about how she is getting ready for a hectic week before being able to look forward to a three week holiday. Sabine has been working with patients in a respite centre in Bristol and, though the work is challenging, she also feels relieved to be able to engage with patients where the primary focus is no longer COVID-19.  While dividing her time between nursing shifts, teaching, and preparing for a presentation at a congress in Tokyo, Sabine is able to reflect on what a varied life nursing can provide.

EfN Podcast Episode 7: Sharing Knowledge and Skills

Sabine Torgler, director of English for Nurses, continues her monthly podcast series with a brand new episode! The podcast series deals with a variety of topics surrounding nursing, overseas nursing, and other important issues in the world of nursing today. Each episode will be available to listen to exclusively via our website. We hope to make the series available through other channels in the future.

In the seventh episode, Sabine talks about her recent experiences working with a new overseas nurse during a late shift at her hospital in Bristol. In some ways, this felt like going right back to the beginning for Sabine – in 2003 she was walking a similar path to this nurse, learning a new language and adapting to a completely new nursing culture in the UK. Understanding the challenges that overseas nurses face is central to English for Nurses, and Sabine considers it an honour to be able to pass on some of her hard-won knowledge and experience. Working with people from different cultures and backgrounds is one of the great joys of working as a nurse, as well as being a key strength of the NHS. Teamwork and encouragement are essential! Nurses United!

For Sabine the answer lies in living well, looking after herself, and focusing on the positives.

In her new article called “An Epiphany from Inside the COVID-19 Crisis in the UK”, Sabine talks about her recent experiences working on a hepatology ward with acutely ill patients. Sabine writes: “Yes, COVID-19 is there, and undoubtedly, yes, COVID-19 has changed our world, our lives and our views. It will never be the same as it was before.
