Moraine Park Technical College will offer Spanish for Nursing at the Fond du Lac campus beginning Wednesday, Sept. 12. The course is designed for health care professionals who work with Spanish-speaking patients and don’t know the language.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to use Spanish to gather basic information and patient history, obtain vital signs, perform physical assessments and routine procedures, assist the patient’s family, reduce fear
of the clinical and hospital setting and explain how the health care system works.
A manual with two CDs will be part of the instructional material. Modeling, role-playing, simulations and situation cards also will be used in this enjoyable way to learn a second language.
Spanish for Nursing, course number 140-433-001, runs Sept. 12 through Oct. 17 from 6 to 8:45 p.m. in
Room O-214 on the Fond du Lac campus. The class costs $40.82 and the manual, which can be purchased at the
campus bookstore, is $42.95. Moraine Park’s Fond du Lac campus is located at 235 N. National Ave.
