Based on best practices and field-tested in hundreds of facilities, this succinct book will help train, orient, and support your new CNAs and give your veteran CNAs added status and responsibility. The second edition has been thoroughly updated to make mentoring even easier and now includes a chapter that reinforces the effectiveness of the mentoring program through a "booster session" as well as new material on mentoring and person-centered care. You don't need additional staff or a big budget to kick-off or maintain a CNA mentoring program. If your facility invests the time and energy, this program will help you reduce your facility's CNA turnover, save you money, and build a more devoted staff.
