Being a bilingual doctor, bilingual nurse or bilingual assistant in the USA is very important nowadays . If you do not understand your patient it can be extremely hard to diagnose them and it can be dangerous as well if they have a life threatening illness.
When English is not your first language, it is not easy to express yourself, especially when you are not feeling well and do not know certain words that you might know in your native language, in this case Spanish.
Because of the high percentage of Spanish speaking population in the US, a bilingual nurse, doctor or assistant is becoming more in demand.
It is so very important for these groups of people to know Spanish, especially the medical terms they deal with every day, in order to make the right diagnosis and give the corresponding medication that the patient needs.
Not only is acquiring new language skills important, the cultural aspect is almost equally important. When learning a new language you also learn about a culture and therefore you become more open-minded and understanding when it comes to people from different cultures then your own. Another advantage of being bilingual is that it might get you a higher salary. It has been shown/found that sometimes people who are bilingual get paid more than their colleagues who are not.
