Written by nurses currently practicing and teaching in the long-term care field, this basic skills book focuses on the basic knowledge and skills needed to do the day-to-day job of a certified nursing assistant in a long-term care facility (and is "not" an acute-care book adapted for long-term care use). Content meets curriculum as required by federal regulators and prepares readers to take the certification examination. It features a consistent approach in which each systems chapter first discusses the normal anatomy and physiology of the body system; then presents age-related changes and common abnormalities, along with related nursing-care guidelines and step-by-step procedures. The book's full-color, extensively illustrated format, accessible reading level, and short manageable sections in a consistent format make it particularly appropriate for today's adult learners. Your Working Environment; Special Needs of the Elderly and Chronically Ill; Basic Nursing Care; Anatomy, Physiology, Cancer, and the Senses; The Integumentary System; The Skeletal System; The Muscular System; The Digestive System; The Urinary System; The Nervous System; The Respiratory System; The Cardiovascular System; The Endocrine System; The Reproductive System and Human Sexuality; Developmental Disabilities; The Restorative Nursing Assistant; Subacute and Emergency Care in the Long-Term Care Facility; End-of-Life Care; and Preparing for the Certification Examination.
