hello! i am a ten-year spanish teacher considering a transition to nursing. there is a very good school in my city, but i would like to explore a bi-lingual program. does anyone know a program where i can spend a lot of time immersed in spanish?

In the USA, pre-licensure nursing education is entirely focused on nursing; There is no such thing as an officially recognized 'minor' for nursing students. Specialization occurs only at the post-bac and graduate level, and nursing specialties are concerned with areas of health care (OB, Psych, CC, etc.). So - I can't imagine any program with an emphasis on Spanish unless it was a clinical practicum or research study focused on providing health care services to a Spanish speaking population.

I am referring to "a clinical practicum or research study focused on providing health care services to a Spanish speaking population". My Spanish is excellent, but I would like to expand my medical vocabulary while in training. I know many of the fundamentals like lungs = pulmones, kidneys = riñones, but don't know the word for femur.
