Overview

Designed for practicing Nursing Assistants and managers of Certified Nursing Assistants, the Second Edition of CNA MENTORING MADE EASY includes everything your CNA trainer needs in one easy-to-use book. Based on best practices and field-tested in hundreds of facilities, this succinct book will help train, orient, and support your new CNAs and give your veteran CNAs added status and responsibility. The second edition has been thoroughly updated to make mentoring even easier and now includes a chapter that reinforces the effectiveness of the mentoring program through a "booster session" as well as new material on mentoring and person-centered care. You don't need additional staff or a big budget to kick-off or maintain a CNA mentoring program. If your facility invests the time and energy, this program will help you reduce your facility's CNA turnover, save you money, and build a more devoted staff.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This program is a wonderful resource and a great value. It shows great respect for the function and people mentoring new employees. Every nursing home needs to have a quality Peer Mentor Program like this one!"Anna Ortigara, RN, MS, FAA, Director of Communication and Education, THE GREEN HOUSE Project
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Viki Hedderick, DEd, MSN, BSN (Edinboro University of Pennsylvania)
Description: This book provides a curriculum for healthcare educators to educate new CNA mentors on effective mentoring.
Purpose: The purpose was to collect all the elements needed to create a mentoring education program for CNAs. The book contains appropriate elements to share with prospective mentors in a clear manner. It includes a full step-by-step curriculum for the educators who will develop and implement a CNA mentoring program.
Audience: The author identifies the audience as educators or "champions" of a CNA mentoring program.
Features: The book provides a detailed curriculum including what the educator should "write on the board" and various exercises to support the content. The topics are appropriate and addressed the practical issues of training/mentoring a new CNA, including the tough conversations. The scenarios and handouts make it a quality, readymade product for organizations who want to purchase a program versus develop a program.
Assessment: With the multiple demands on educators in healthcare institutions, this readymade mentor curriculum is a treasure. I have seen many books on the general concept of mentoring, but this is the first I have seen that specifically targets CNAs and that provides a program ready to roll out. This will save an educator hours of preparation time.

Meet the Author

Karl Pillemer, Ph.D. is the Hazel E. Reed Professor of Human Development at Cornell University and Professor of Gerontology in Medicine at the Weill Cornell Medical College. Since 1993, he has been Director of the Cornell Institute for Translational Research on Aging, a center devoted to using research to create interventions to improve the quality of life of older persons. For the past two decades, he has conducted a program of research involving staff in nursing homes and other long-term care environments. Projects have included a longitudinal study of relationships between family members of residents with staff in nursing homes, and the first scientific study of abuse of residents in long-term care. He has developed and evaluated a number of nursing home interventions, including model training, mentoring, and career ladder programs. These evidence-based interventions include "Partners in Caregiving," which builds cooperation and communication between nursing home staff and family members, and "Retention Specialist Program," which improves the ability of nursing homes to retain CNAs. He has written many scientific and trade articles on long-term care staffing, and is the author of the book "Solving the Frontline Crisis in Long-Term Care." Beyond the academic and professional community, Dr. Pillemer has created publications for frontline long-term care workers themselves, including the widely-used "The Nursing Assistant's Survival Guide." He is the founding editor of "Nursing Assistant Monthly," an educational newsletter that reaches thousands of nursing assistants nationwide. In addition, he has served as a consultant to long-term care providers, research groups, and trade organizations around the country and in Europe.
