Editorial Reviews

AWHONN, the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric, and Neonatal Nurses, provides a framework which combines knowledge evaluation and clinical skills verification, rather than isolating the two components. Focusing on unlicensed assistive personnel as well as on registered nurses, this toolkit provides examples and guidelines for developing competence validation programs in a variety of settings. The bulk of the book provides tests, skills checklists, and other assessment tools. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
