As a nurse in Dallas TX, you HAVE to know some spanish, as anywhere from 1-3 of your patients each day is spanish-speaking only. I had the misfortune of growing up in Tennessee (I got to TX as soon as I could =-), so I chose to learn French earlier which hasn't helped me so far in communicating to a single patient. Anyway, this little guy fits in your pocket but is a bit tall. It's got almost all of the essentials like body parts, common diseases, numbers, tells you how to say I've called a translator...etc. But I've found that the middle two pages don't help very much to a floor nurse- they're just kinda random questions and statements. I love how it's plastic though and you can just wipe it off with alcohol or whatever so you won't spread cooties. Pretty good bang for the buck.
