Spanish Certificate

  1. 0 I'm currently a nursing student who is trying to achieve a Spanish certificate. A Spanish minor is offered at my college, but the nursing curriculum makes it difficult to complete the required classes. I was wondering if anyone knew of any ways I could achieve a Spanish certificate. I have some Spanish courses, but I don't know if they would be transferable. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Just out of sheer curiosity... why do you want a spanish certificate? I mean if you just want to learn spanish you can do that online, right? My college offers it online, would that maybe be easier then having to actually go in to class?

    I want a Spanish certificate to show employers that I am able to speak Spanish with patients. Also, my college doesn't offer Spanish online, so I have to go to the actual class.

    My college doesn't have a winter session, and the summer session classes that are offered are only elementary level.

    Most hospital HR departments have a tool used to qualify personnel for interpretation / translation services.

    A degree or minor in Spanish isn't usually a requirement.

    You may wanna check this out if you're very interested in going this route.

    FWIW, many nurses I know that expressed this idea ended up abandoning it because it lead to them having to take time away from their assignments without an "acceptable" benefit. IOW, it turned out to be more of a burden, so they stopped doing it.

    Hope this helps.

    Good luck!

    In case you don't know already, I know that many colleges offer online courses in Spanish for the Medical Field...specially designed for people who work in health care who would like to learn Spanish to make them more viable at their job. Hope this helps.
