LEARNING BY DOING: TEACHING AND LEARNING NURSING IN ENGLISH (LEBYDO)

In our students, added to the motivation to access training programs offered from other places in Europe, it’s the desire of working in European countries where nurses are in great demand, such as the UK. Being able to speak fluently in English predicts a greater likelihood of success and to include in curricula essential contents in English can contribute to that success.

As teaching / learning another language involves getting to know it, and generally teachers and students are limited to handle it smoothly, we need to promote, in the near future, a bilingual education that benefits both. We believe that an innovative strategy to begin to tackle this challenge is to learn together, by doing and teaching nursing in English. Therefore we intend to develop motivation in teachers and students towards the gradual introduction of English in nursing curricula.

We have developed interactive bilingual material (presentations, videos, glossaries) related to the development of skills in assessment of vital signs, pain, and psychosocial factors, as well as basic interpersonal communication skills required to promote the development of the therapeutic relationship with patient and family. In the same way, we have work core competencies in Evidence-Based Nursing, nursing research and statistics.
