Overview
The fourth edition of Lippincott Essentials for Nursing Assistants: A Humanistic Approach to Caregiving provides the foundational concepts and facts that a nursing assistant needs to function competently in a long-term care facility, acute care facility, or home health agency. Students enrolled in shorter, "essentials"-focused programs typically have limited time to read/prepare for class. Therefore, this text includes only the most basic, essential information with the understanding that this foundational knowledge will be supplemented by classroom instruction and on-the-job training. Pam Carter„s conversational, yet professional, writing style explains complex information in a way students can easily understand. Procedure boxes provide concise, step-by-step instructions incorporating the latest guidelines and NNAAP skill revisions. Guidelines boxes with a unique "What You Do/Why You Do It" format help readers understand why things are done a certain way because understanding the why leads to better memory recollection. Promoting pride in the profession is at the heart of the book, ensuring that students truly know that becoming a nursing assistant can make a difference in the lives of others. KEY FEATURES: - NEW!
