Abstract
Nurses should speak English well while they care for patients and when they communicate with other people. The objective of this research is to examine the correlation between the mastery of sentence stress and grammar and the oral presentation of medical records in English by nursing students. The total number of student subjects was 46. The students were given a grammar and reading aloud test for gathering data. The oral presentation data was gathered from their presentation test in the National Comprehensive Examination. Nursing and English lecturers were the evaluators. By focusing on the mastery of sentence stress and grammar during the oral presentation of medical records, students are not only provided with the skills of language but are encouraged to speak or communicate effectively, thus making it easy for them to communicate with other medical teams and patients. This research explores the understanding of how important it is to give emphasis to certain words in sentences and the importance of using correct grammar when speaking English. The writer will show these elements of language influence the oral presentation of medical records.
