Give your students the knowledge and skills they need to provide safe, compassionate long-term care! Mosby's Textbook for Long-Term Care Nursing Assistants, 9th Edition prepares students to succeed as professional caregivers for residents in long-term care settings. More than 100 step-by-step procedures include clear instructions for performing skills such as measuring vital signs, bedmaking, and collecting specimens. Not only does the book cover the functions and limitations of the nursing assistant’s role, but its delegation guidelines outline the information students need to collect from the nurse and care plan before performing and then documenting a procedure. With easy-to-follow coverage of all of the care required by OBRA, this text also helps students prepare for success on the Nursing Assistant certification exam.

    • Concise long-term care content is presented at a 6th-grade reading level to make understanding easier for readers of all levels and abilities.
