Elizabeth Hanson and Jenae Kirby, instructors at Shoreline Community College, have co-authored a textbook for use by faculty and students, designed for students who speak English as a second language who are beginning their healthcare career training. Take a look at this free, online textbook: On-Ramp to Nursing Assistant Certified.
From the Lulu site description of the text:
Prepare your high beginning level/intermediate level ESL students for entrance into a regular nursing assistant program or for entrance into a general health care career training program. Each of the 6 units includes 3 readings, vocabulary development, writing and grammar instruction and practice. This course is based on authentic nursing assistant course materials. Topics include: health problems, duties of a Nursing Assistant, places to work in health care, and the infectious disease chain. This is a great starting point for students and ESL teachers.
Thanks, Elizabeth and Jenae, for sharing your expertise with the world!
