This new book is written for students becoming certified nursing assistants in long-term care institutions, hospitals or clinics, or certified home health aides. Special features make it especially useful for non-native English speakers and native speakers with a low literacy level. The text always takes into account the language and culture differences of the students. Vocabulary clearly distinguishes between English words/phrases that present problems to ESL students and required medical terminology. It includes language instruction aimed at communicative competence in the workplace.
The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.
