Author Bio
I really wanted to publish a text that was current in not only regulatory practices but in terms of innovative caregiving practices as well. I felt as though students going through a nursing assistant course should be prepared with the best and most current information to address emerging health care trends. Most nursing assistant texts on the market today do not address the ever growing complex demands placed on direct caregivers.
