Summary

For Nursing Assistants working in every care environment (hospitals, nursing facilities & homes).

This exceptionally comprehensive, affordable, and student-friendly nursing assistant text is designed to stand alone without the need for a student workbook. Extensively illustrated -- yet uncluttered -- it features simple language and thought-provoking, interactive exercise material to draw students into the text and keep them engaged throughout. The text focuses on health care as it is being practiced today in diverse areas of the health care delivery system -- incorporating both tried-and-true standards and recent changes in procedures and philosophies. Throughout, a holistic, humanistic approach and restorative focus serve as a unifying element, and an emphasis on cultural awareness helps students develop effective communication skills for today's multicultural world. This is a 1 color, no-frills revision and less expensive!
