PEARSON'S NURSING ASSISTANT TODAY brings together all the skills, knowledge, and practical insights today’s nursing assistants need to succeed in any care environment. Written for students with widely diverse learning needs and reading proficiencies, it is designed for easy understanding and quick reference. It presents 152 step-by-step procedures, ranging from the absolute basics to advanced procedures for use at the instructor’s discretion. All procedures reflect 2010 AHA guidelines for CPR and ECC, modern care technologies, and Medicare OBRA requirements. Each procedure is explained with rationales, preparation, steps, follow-up, a charting example, and in many cases, full-color illustrations. This text’s pedagogical features include chapter learning objectives, “On the Job” scenarios, “Nursing Assistant in Action” critical thinking features, exercises, sample exams, and more.
