    Dr. Carrie L. Jarosinski is a registered nurse, certified nurse educator, certified wellness practitioner, thought leader, and author. She began her career as a nursing assistant and then as a registered nurse in long-term care. She then moved on to work in public health, focusing on children with special healthcare needs, childhood lead poisoning prevention, and prenatal health. In 2006, Carrie started her teaching career as adjunct faculty in the Nursing and Nursing Assistant Programs at Mid-State Technical College (MSTC). In 2007, she became the Lead Nursing Assistant Instructor and Program Director at MSTC and is now the lead faculty in the Health and Wellness Promotion Program. Owner of Bold Contentment LLC, she offers coaching, consulting, and speaking services to a vast audience.

    In 2015, Carrie authored the first edition Essentials of Certified Nursing Assisting textbook and workbook. She also completed a Doctorate of Nursing Practice in Systems Leadership with a focus on rural food desert conditions from Walden University. She has presented at numerous national and international conferences on wellness practices and has authored Reclaim Your Story: Renew Your Health and Wellness through the Power of Storytelling.

    This nursing assistant textbook holistically addresses clients as opposed to teaching narrow caregiving practices that focus on a specific disease process. I collaborated with others around the nation to ensure that the content of this textbook is not only up to date but offered the most innovative and compassionate caregiving techniques so that we can empower a new generation of nursing assistants to provide exceptional care.

    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.
