See what California instructors are saying about this book...

If you are teaching a Nurse Assistant Training Program using the NATAP Model Curriculum (www.ca-hwi.org) and any textbook other than August Learning Solutions’ CNA Nursing Assistant Certification, California Edition textbook you don’t know what you are missing. I was introduced to August Learning Solutions’ CNA Nurse Assistant Certification California Edition textbook. The size (thickness) of it does not intimidate students. The reading is understandable and relatable for students. For instructors, it means no more crosswalk and course outlines/syllabi are easy to create. And no more having to explain and/or change information because the textbook says one thing and California says another. I highly recommend the August Learning Solutions textbook as it is spot on, it makes your job as an instructor that much easier and user friendly for students.”

—Charlotte F. Hopkins LVN, DSD, BSHA, MBA, Owner of Creative Medical Education and Training Solutions

“One of the most difficult tasks in teaching the nursing assistant program is being able to help students navigate supportive resources. California is very specific in the content we teach yet, to date, all CNA textbooks challenged the student to find the right chapter, page number and skill check off associated with lecture material and the mandated modules. Now, with the creation and publication of CNA: Nursing Assistant Certification, California Edition, finding supportive reading has been made easy, efficient and accurate. I am very excited about this new textbook and certain my students will benefit greatly from its organization to California specifics.” 

 —Julie B. Blaney, R.N., MSN-Ed, Program Director, American River College, Los Rios Community College District

“The August Learning Solutions CNA: California Edition textbook and workbook has made my job as the RN Program Director so much easier. I appreciate how the book is organized according to the modules and I can reference material much easier. This book benefits the students both academically and financially. I appreciate that it includes a downloadable App that students can view the skills from their smartphones.”  

 —Amy E. Cowart, MSN-ED, RN, PHN, DSD, Associate Professor Nursing, Director Nursing Assistant Program, Chair Nursing Assistant Program, Riverside City College, School of Nursing

“The California Edition of the CNA textbook and its workbook, published by August Learning Solutions, was an answer for all the hassle to find the subject for the nursing assistant curriculum modules set by CDPH. The organization of content in the textbook is aligned with the California nursing assistant curriculum modules. It is easy for both instructors and students to follow according to the titles of the modules and skills content. The textbook is priced very affordably to the students and supports excellent instructional materials, including videos and test banks. I appreciate the superb customer service.”

 —Chun Hee McMahon, BSN, RN, CHPN, Clinical Educator, Clovis Adult Education

“This book was long overdue and I’m glad you all took the first steps to ease the process for instructors teaching CNA programs in California. I found the book to be really outstanding.”  

 —Derek Copple, RN, Nursing Instructor, Palo Verde Community College

Meet the Author

Hello fellow CNA instructors,

My name is Carrie Jarosinski and I am the author of the August Learning Solutions family of CNA textbooks. I am excited to announce the recent publication of the newest title in our series, CNA: Nursing Assistant Certification, California Edition. This truly is the book you have all been waiting for.

While speaking with instructors in California about the specific needs of the state and the shortfalls of the existing textbook options, it was clear there was a need for a concise and easy-to-follow option for California CNA programs. No textbook on the market addressed the mandated topics, order, or depth of coverage mandated by the state of California. It seemed each instructor had his or her own way of dealing with the issue: using supplemental material, bouncing around from page to page and chapter to chapter in existing books, or even trying to write content to cover missing topics. We saw the frustration and knew there was a better way for both instructors and students.

We embarked on the creation of a new, California-specific CNA textbook immediately. We knew that each and every student in California would benefit from concise, linear content that spoke directly to his or her needs. Thus, CNA: Nursing Assistant Certification, California Edition, was launched.

We spent months honing content specifically for California, arranging the content into modules per the CDPH listing, writing California-specific content, and reviewing the book with current California CNA instructors to ensure we covered all the aspects of teaching in California.

This book is ultimately for YOU. I hope you find that this was the missing piece of your CNA course and that your students will truly benefit from it.

All the best,

Carrie Jarosinski
