NCF Foundations Course

Nursing Communication Foundations (NCF)

CARE Centre has developed a special online course, Nursing Communication Foundations, designed for nurses with an English language proficiency level of Canadian Language Benchmark 5 and 6. The course requires a minimum of 35 hours of independent study time. The course also helps to develop online learning proficiency, improve computer skills – must-have knowledge for the profession in Canada and take your first step toward Canadian workplace readiness.

During the course you will create personal vocabulary, grammar and communication reference guides to use for future study. The course has four parts:

  • Vocabulary Foundations: learn and review words that are specific to nursing and health care.
  • Grammar Foundations: learn the fundamentals of English grammar as applied to a nursing context.
  • Communication Foundations: listen to different dialogues from common situations that nurses encounter in healthcare settings and answer questions about the information you hear.
  • Cultural Foundations: review different scenarios in which culture, not language and not medicine, is the main communication challenge.
