Welcome to my blog! My name is Brittany Ilagan. I am a senior nursing student at Virginia Commonwealth University. I am currently enrolled in a Spanish for Healthcare Providers course. In this course, I will be connecting with native-speaking students learning English in Mexico. We will have sessions called “Teletandem” where we will be able to speak face-to-face about our different cultures. These interactions will enable me to practice my Spanish so that I am better prepared and more culturally competent in the hospital setting. The blogs I write will reflect each Teletandem session. Enjoy!
