This amazing book is a must have for any healthcare professional. Very easy to read and to understand, loaded with photos and illustrations, it gives step-by-step instructions on over 100 healthcare procedures. With over 800 pages, a glossary section and a CD-ROM, The MOSBY'S TEXTBOOK FOR NURSING ASSISTANTS is indeed an excellent guidance system for the CNA and the regular person taking care of another. As a NURSING ASSISTANT, this very important book will ever be my point of reference.
This latest edition is well updated with everything pertaining to basic and intermediate healthcare.
Most highly recommend to anyone who is in this field or contemplating healthcare as a career.

I used Mosby's Textbook for Nursing Assistants over twenty years at a high school nursing program. When it came time to reorder new books, my colleague and I would review other nursing assistant text books. No other publication came close to identifying clearly the salient points of skill procedures, patent dignity, cleanliness and safety than Shella Sorrento's nursing assistant text books.

While you will learn all you need for the "written" test ( it's actually on computer), the book
doesn't help to give you a heads up on the Skills test, taken the same day. A listing of all the
steps involved in each one, with a list of supplies needed for each would have been good.
There is a CD that comes with the text that purportedly has such but the audio/visual part
leaves out a lot and I found myself printing out the text for each skill from the CD. I took a
six-week intensive course with only five weeks of classes (M - TH), only half of which dealt
with the skills. Ten classes, three hours each, with eight other students to learn all the 22
skills was just not enough time to get the practice necessary and while my test is still more
than 3 weeks away I feel shaky on the Skills. Six days of practicum at a hospital was somewhat
helpful, but the practice there while basically the same, was different enough from what the
state test calls for as to confuse and frustrate this student. Again, the text is good as far as it
goes but should give fair warning ( and advice) on the, to my mind, more important issue of
preparing for the practice (skills): eg. schedule study sessions with your fellow students, all
whose phone numbers you have, using the classroom on campus (with permission and availability
secured) to practice the skills!

I was slightly leery of ordering a used textbook, but, this was a steal compared to the school bookstore. Yes there was some highlighting, annotating, and some of the questions were already answered, but it certainly doesn't alter my way of reading a textbook. Excellent!

This textbook is probably my number one source for information in my CNA course. It teaches you the essentials and the discs are great for getting the skills down. The images that accompany the chapters are also very informative and definitely intriguing.

Full of information and is exactly what i was looking for. I wouldn't return the purchase for anything else. My expectations were set high and it reached them. I recommend this book for those who are seeking a career in the CNA/ Medical field.

Well organized information, review test at the end of each chapter helps remember the information. Covers all topics possible and hopefully I will do well on the state test. I am told 2 students after using this textbook scored 100% on their Florida CNA test.
