Hartman's Nursing Assistant Care by Jetta Futzy (5th Edition) is vital to your CNA education and required for class. You will receive one textbook on the first day of class; it is included in your tuition. If you lose your textbook and need a replacement it must be paid for.
This text covers everything a CNA needs to know to be prepared for a career in healthcare. Each chapter covers a different aspect of CNA work-- everything from basic medical terminologies, common medical equipment, proper patient care, different conditions and diseases that most commonly affect residents, proper nutrition and special nutritional diets, what to expect in the work environment, legal protocols, job placement, self care, and more.
We highly recommend purchasing and downloading the audiobook version (available on Audible through Amazon) to use for studying at home in addition to the physical copy you will use in class every day.
