For more than a decade, the How To Be a Nurse Assistant curriculum has provided the most thorough, resident-centered training available, and the Student Combo Pack continues that tradition. It includes the student textbook and the workbook - everything you need to get certified and secure a job as a CNA.
Written and developed by registered nurses with over 25 years of experience, the textbook has 32 easy-to-read chapters that focus on mindful caregiving and clearly demonstrate and teach the work of a CNA. With over 500 full-color photos and illustrations, it expertly covers:
Long term, subacute, prenatal, and postnatal care
Applications of OBRA
Step-by-step procedures and critical finishing steps
How to communicate and interact effectively with residents and co-workers
Preparing for the certification exam
The fifth edition is updated with current federal regulations, has a revised CPR section, and new chapters on customer service and understanding the survey process. It uniquely prepares CNAs to provide mindful, quality care that enhances quality of life.
The workbook further helps students master their caregiving skills and process what they are learning in the course. With a variety of quizzes and exercises that go with every chapter of the student textbook, students can assess their comprehension and see what areas need more review. The 60-question practice exam and skills checklist at the end of the workbook will ensure that students are fully prepared for their certification exams. Answers are provided in the Instructor's Manual.
