An ideal resource for aspiring nursing assistants who are preparing for their state testing and certification, this popular guide on long-term care stresses the importance of the nursing assistant in improving the quality of life for residents.

Covers advanced directives, including living wills and power-of-attorney for health care; growth and development, including an explanation of developmental tasks at each age level; and new procedures for taking temperatures. Includes exercises and competency tests, and offers an appealing new design with numerous photographs and illustrations to support discussions.
