Overview

NURSING ASSISTING: A NURSING PROCESS APPROACH prepares more nursing assistants for careers in acute care, long-term care, and home health than any other resource of its kind. The eleventh edition's step-by-step format walks readers through more than 150 procedures, including key skills in patient handling and transfers, wound care, communication, safety, and record keeping, as well as special care procedures for patients with medical devices, catheters, and physical or mental impairments. Students also explore essential background information such as basic human anatomy, career planning, and the latest health care trends. Also available: the MindTap® online learning experience.
