Nursing assistants (i.e., hospice aides, home health aides, nursing aides, etc.) provide essential care for the patient and family from diagnosis of a serious illness to hospice is a vital component of palliative care. As a vital member of the palliative care team, nursing assistants often spend more time with patients than any other healthcare worker, which offers them the opportunity to get to know patients and families better than other healthcare workers do. The third edition of the Core Curriculum for the Hospice and Palliative Nursing Assistant provides context for caring for patients with serious illness through care setting across the illness trajectory. It provides content on the different levels of hospice care, care settings, dementia, pressure ulcers, and isolation procedures. There are cases studies with open-ended questions for discussion and multiple choice questions. In addition, there is a practice exam based on the Certified Hospice and Palliative Nursing Assistant (CHPNA) Test Content Outline as well as content on test taking and study skills.
