Student Nurse Learner


Recommended Posts

Hi!

I start as a Student Children/Mental Health Nurse in September and have wanted to learn BSL for a while, so I thought I would take this summer to brush up the very few signs I have known since childhood into an actual functioning working knowledge o the language so that I can better help future patients.
I'd love to practise with someone, I'm starting lesson five today so I'm not exceptionally brilliant, but I'm eager!

I'm currently struggling with the few different ways I've found to say 'I am a student nurse and I will get you an interpreter'. Here it says one thing but the Liverpool John More University Mentors say something else, also using BSL!

    • Good morning, I’ve been with my partner for almost 2 years and their maternal family uses BSL. So far I’ve picked up the the basics, stuck to them and relied on them lip-reading but I’m trying to be more proactive and learn BSL kind of “meet them halfway.” I’d like to be able to engage in deeper conversations with them but am just learning to sign now. Any advice please?
    • Hi, my name’s Taz. I’m 25 and live in London. I’m just learning how to introduce myself in BSL now and love learning about the community also. How about you guys?
    • Hello! My name is Kathryn and I have far too many hobbies to list. I work in tourism and as a carer (and also sometimes at my local bookshop). I've had an interest in learning BSL for a long time but decided to commit to it as part of my Queen's Guide Award which is the highest award you can achieve in GirlGuiding, essentially the same as the King's Scout Award if you're involved in Scouting.
