Coming from a family of educators, Brad knows both the joys and challenges of teaching well. Through his own teaching background, he’s experienced both firsthand. As a writer for iCEV, Brad’s goal is to help teachers empower their students by listening to educators’ concerns and creating content that answers their most pressing questions about career and technical education.
This book is the shortest one on our list, and is organized into ten chapters:
The Nursing Assistant In Long-Term Care
Foundations of Resident Care
Body Systems and Related Conditions
Confusion, Dementia, and Alzheimer’s Disease
Personal Care Skills
Basic Nursing Skills
Nutrition and Hydration
Rehabilitation and Restorative Care
Caring for Yourself
You’ll find more than 60 procedures your students need to know to be successful CNAs throughout the chapters.
Overall, this recently updated textbook is easy for students to follow, with straightforward language, clear organization, and procedural guidelines highlighted throughout the content.
However, the main drawback of this CNA book is its brevity. It may lack the in-depth teaching required to help your students pass their certified nursing assistant exam unless partnered with a more comprehensive teaching system.
Nursing Assistant Care: The Basics is an excellent option for teachers focused on the basics of nursing assisting and would be a great supplementary text if you have an existing curriculum.
