    I think either that this is a valid concern. Nurses from other countries who speak English as their second language should adapt and try to study the accent that can be understood by their patients. As carers they should be the ones who would adjust to their patients and not the other way around. That is the reason why we foreign nurses are required to take English exam which includes listening, reading, writing and speaking, so that we could meet the minimum requirement needed to effectively deliver the communication process to our patients. Any miscommunications might jeopardize the safety of our patients. We cannot afford to commit any form of malifecense considering we are patient's advocates.
