Praise for a previous edition: Serves as an excellent study guide for students or as a source of course examination questions for the instructor...The author has skillfully taken the format of the National Association of the Boards of Examiners of Nursing Home Administrators and utilized them as a basis for this text. --Journal of Health Administration Education
This revised and updated study guide is based on the same format as the actual exam and provides an easy-to-use, effective way to review essential concepts and practice test-taking skills. Serving as the key companion to Nursing Home Administration, 5th Edition (Springer Publishing, 2008), this up-to-the-minute guide reflects the latest changes in the domains of practice for nursing home administrators.
