The Nursing Assistant is a concise, practical, and up-to-date guide to the skills today's nursing assistants need to master. 

The textbook addresses the needs of the whole patient or resident, while promoting independence and self-care.  Carefully organized to follow nursing process models, state curricula, and OBRA mandates, it walks through 75 step-by-step procedures reflecting the most common nursing assistant tasks.

The program includes four sets of certification-style multiple-choice questions (one in the Student Edition; one in the Student Activity Guide; and two on the Companion Website or Student CD-ROM) to help students prepare for the certification exam.
