Summary

Now in its Second Edition, this textbook will prepare students to work as nursing assistants in nursing homes, hospitals, and home health, and will provide a firm foundation for advancement to an LPN and ultimately an RN role. The book is written in a direct, conversational writing style with an engaging art program and an emphasis on professionalism and humanism. This edition is significantly updated and has new photographs and illustrations. The presentation in this edition is also more consistent with Lippincott's Video Series for Nursing Assistants. A front-of-book CD-ROM includes an audio glossary. An audiobook version of the entire text in MP3 format is available as a separate purchase.
