About Nursing Communication Online

The Nursing Communication Online project is proudly funded by the Association for Academic Language and Learning (AALL). It aims to provide nursing students with a flexible online learning environment to enhance their language and learning skills in their study of nursing. This online resource consists of a variety of contents including four videos which cover the topics of essay writing, nursing shift handovers and pronunciation of medical terminology. In addition, each module is suplemented with interactive activities to help in practising essential nursing communication skills.
