Known for its comprehensive coverage, readability, and visual presentation, Mosby’s Textbook for Nursing Assistants, 10th Edition helps prepare students to work in long-term care, acute care, and subacute care settings — and includes a practice scenario in each chapter to enhance clinical judgment skills. It is the most comprehensive text for CNA programs, packed with step-by-step instructions for over 100 procedures and perfect for programs that are 80 hours or longer. The lifespan coverage includes skills not only for adults and older residents, but also for maternity and pediatric patients, so students are comfortable in a variety of care settings. New chapter organization allows students to learn in manageable portions and a revitalized art program clarifies important concepts and procedural steps.

    • A clear writing style at a 7th grade reading level ensures accessibility for low-level learners.

    • Complete coverage of the knowledge and skills needed to pass the state certification exam and engage in safe practice.
    • Focus on Practice: Problem Solving provides scenarios that stimulate critical thinking about common situations encountered during practice.
    • Focus on Math feature reviews mathematical calculations needed in various care measures and procedures.
    • Focus on Surveys feature highlights the nursing assistant’s role during state inspections.

    • Promoting Safety and Comfort boxes emphasize the importance of the patient’s or resident’s safety and comfort.
    • Delegation Guidelines detail the specifics of accepting delegated tasks.
    • Focus on Children and Older Person boxes provide age-specific information about special needs, considerations, and circumstances of children and older persons.
    • Focus on Long-Term Care and Home Care boxes highlight information vital to providing competent care in the long-term and home care settings.
    • Focus on Communication boxes provide guidelines for how to clearly communicate with residents and avoid comments that might make them uncomfortable.
    • Caring About Culture boxes contain information to help you learn about the various practices of other cultures.
    • Teamwork and Time Management boxes provide specific guidelines to help nursing assistants work most efficiently whether independently or as part of the nursing team.
    • Chapter review questions are a useful study guide found at the end of each chapter.
