English for Nursing

Saat ini profesi bidang kesehatan sangat diminati generasi muda di Indonesia. Sehingga tak heran Sekolah Tinggi Ilmu Kesehatan juga tumbuh dimana-mana. Profesi kebidanan maupun keperawatan merupakan profesi yang sangat menjanjikan, kalaupun tidak menjadi PNS, para alumni dapat bekerja di luar negeri, atau buka praktek mandiri.

Saat ini banyak permintaan tenaga kesehatan dari berbagai negara seperti Arab Saudi Australia dll. Tetapi tentunya para tenaga kesehatan tersebut harus memiliki kompetensi bahasa di samping kompetensi keilmuannya. Salah satu STIKES yang konsen dengan hal ini adalah STIKES Amanah Padang yang beralamat di Jalan S. Parman Padang. STIKES Amanah Padang menyelenggarakan perkuliahan bahasa Inggris khususnya English for Nursing bagi mahasiswanya sejak di semester pertama. Selain itu, mahasiswa juga dibekali skill bahasa Arab.

English for Nursing berbeda dengan bahasa Inggris biasa. Materi perkuliahan lebih diarahkan pada pengembangan keterampilan komunikasi bidang medis. Dalam perkuliahan empat keterampilan dasar berbahasa juga dikembangkan, baik speaking, listening, reading maupun writing. Hal ini sesuai dengan praktek di lapangan bahwa calon tenaga medis tersebut membutuhkan keempat keterampilan berbahasa tersebut (contoh silabus dapat dilihat di sini).

Dengan bekal tersebut, diharapkan alumni siap untuk bersaing di dunia kerja nantinya.
