is language an issue for working as surgical nurse?

  1. i am an international nursing student. it's time for me to choose one area which i need to study more now. but i consider my english, i am not sure whether the language is a big issue for me to working as a surgical nurse. my english is alright, but not perfect at the moment. i still have two years to study, may be i can improve a lot after graduating. i can choose form medical, mental or surgical areas. honestly i don't like mental. can someone give me any suggestions that which one is more suitable for me?? thanks a lot

    There is no one easier area where language is concerned - although some areas have a special language all of thier own. Language is one of those things that only improve with use.

    Hi Vivian,
    Nice to see you posting again. Of course, you can choose the area in which you want to specialize in. You still have two more years of schooling to go, if I remember correctly...............your English skills are improving on a daily basis, aren't they? Just pick what you like and the language skills will follow. I promise, especially since you have been working so hard at it already. You were accepted to a nursing school in another country to begin with, you should feel good just with that.

    Are you still working part-time? and how is it going?
