You could take a course in medical terminology, that might help. The handwriting thing might never change unfortunately, hopefully the hospital will go digital and use voice software so handwriting will be a thing of the past!

I am a nurse in the ER and want to assure you that things DO get better. You will start to understand the scribbles and you will get more comfortable with the demands of the job but it does take sometime. Our HUCs/techs always multitask and have to deal with a lot of difficult conversations (from RNs, MDs, patietnts and families) but they just can not be replaced! As for the language, it will also take sometime but you will get the hang of it as well. You just have to make sure to ask LOTS of questions before you end orientation and even after. Also, make lists! They always help is organizing info and prioritizing 🙂 Hope this helps! Good luck <3

The handwriting thing gets better.  I used to work in a pharmacy so I had to read prescriptions all the time.  You will eventually learn to identify the words as you become more familiar with them.
