Don't take our word for it. Here's what CNA instructors and students had to say.

Reviews

“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 checkoff 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

“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.

As a R.N. for 37 years and a NA instructor for 12 years, I have found this text to be thorough in all aspects. I have utilized the text for over a year and have received positive feedback from students, particularly the description of bathing options […]. This text expands beyond the basic skills for assisted living or nursing home care. The learner is provided not only with a summary of learner outcomes but also is challenged by a review of scenarios with or without a partner, prioritizing, and sample test questions […]. The workbook which accompanies this text is filled with practical and challenging questions to help students grow in knowledge and in their nursing skill sets. – Cathy Guse R.N. Adjunct Faculty

Really well written, super descriptive and goes through everything so you can fully understand and comprehend it!! – Sydnie B. CNA Student

I learned a lot after reviewing the textbook and appreciated the simplicity and similarities of the chapters. It was helpful being able to highlight, and having the information I needed right in front of me. – Emmalee P. CNA Student

Wow…this book was one of the best textbooks I ever was able to use. This book has really inspired me and made me get my feet wet in the CNA field and I truly did enjoy it. I spent many hours thinking, studying and enjoying every moment. My favorite part was when I read all the situations describing different clients and it made me think that I would be able to help these kinds of people someday, which I thoroughly enjoyed.  – Matt D. CNA Student
