Being a Long-Terns Care Nursing Assistant, 5th edition, is filled with new features to enhance the learning of students preparing to become certified nursing assistants (CNAs). Written by two nurses involved in the day-to-day realities of long-term care, the text clearly demonstrates the many skills demanded of a competent CNA and explains other important aspects of care such as interpersonal relationships, communication and compassion.
These proven authors recognize not only the value of the caregivers but also the unique learning needs of today's adult learner. Learning objectives are realistic, understandable, measurable, and achievable, helping students and instructors zero in on what matters. Information is presented in short, manageable sections using a consistent format. The full-color, richly illustrated presentation and accessible reading level ensures that students of all ages and backgrounds can concentrate on information instead of struggling with the language.
EMPHASIS ON ESSENTIAL INFORMATION
This text focuses exclusively on "need-to-know" information about topics and procedures directly relevant to the job of the CNA in long-term care. Activities outside the scope of CNA practice have not been included. This is a text designed specifically for long-term care, not adapted from an acute care text.
CONSISTENT SYSTEMS APPROACH
The text is organized in a consistent body systems approach for easier learning. Each systems chapter introduces the normal anatomy and physiology of that system, followed by age-related changes and common symptoms, diseases, and conditions. Related guidelines for care and step-by-step procedures are integrated throughout, helping students recognize the direct relationship between the care provided and the rationale. Feedback from students and teachers alike has favored this approach.
KEY THEMES AND CONCEPTS REINFORCED THROUGHOUT
The authors have threaded key themes and concepts throughout the text, reinforcing their importance in quality care. Such themes and concepts include residents' rights, age-related changes, infection control, safety, cultural awareness, standard precautions, psychosocial needs, rehabilitation, documentation, age-specific competencies, and kind, compassionate care. Emphasis on the unique needs of the elderly and disabled contributes to improved job performance and client health and satisfaction.
