Here is the First Set of Phrases in Spanish for Nurses:

Let’s begin with a few examples that can be used to open a conversation.

Phrase 1

  • Hola, mi nombre es Jessica, Yo voy a ser su enfermera hoy.
  • Hi, my name is Jessica, I’ll be your nurse today.
  • Hola, mi nombre es Jessica, Yo voy a ser su enfermera hoy.

In this example, we used the word “enfermera” to refer to a female nurse. To use this phrase with a male nurse you would have to change the letter “a” at the end of the word “enfermera” for the letter “o” so the word becomes the masculine noun which is “enfermero.”

So, for a male nurse, the phrase would sound like this:

  • Hola, soy Robert, Yo voy a ser su enfermero hoy.
  • Hi, my name is Robert, I’ll be your nurse today.
  • Hola, soy Robert, Yo voy a ser su enfermero hoy.

 

Phrase 2

  • ¿Cómo está hoy?
  • How are you today?
  • ¿Cómo está hoy?

There are a few common answers to a question like this one, and to make things easier for yourself and the person with whom you’re talking you could follow your question with a few possible answers such as these:

  • Bien – good
  • Mal – bad
  • Mejor – Better
  • Peor – Worst

So, using some of those words,  the question could sound like this:

  • ¿Cómo está hoy? ¿Bien o mal?
  • How are you today? ¿Well or not well?
  • ¿Cómo está hoy? ¿Bien o mal?

Another option could be

  • ¿Cómo está hoy? ¿Mejor o peor?
  • How are you today? ¿Better or worse?
  • ¿Cómo está hoy? ¿Mejor o peor?

Another way to ask a similar question could be:

  • ¿Cómo se siente hoy? ¿Mejor o peor?
  • How are you feeling today? ¿Better or worse?
  • ¿Cómo se siente hoy? ¿Mejor o peor?

Now let’s look at a few questions you can use to ask a patient if he or she needs something in particular.
