Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This essentials version of Lippincott's Textbook for Nursing Assistants maintains the popular "humanistic" approach of the textbook by showing students the integral role the nursing assistant plays in patients' and residents' lives; yet its concise coverage renders it appropriate for a shortened course. By focusing on the most commonly-encountered aspects of the nursing assistant's role in nursing homes, hospitals, and home health, this text will prepare students for a nursing assistant career in any setting.
