Volume 13 of 'A Collection of Reader-Submitted Stories' is a surprise mini-book. Don't let the size fool you. As healthcare workers know, it's always the little old lady who packs the biggest punch! <br /><br />Readers from around the globe share more jaw-dropping stories that will leave you cringing, crying, confused, and laughing. <br /><br />How far did a flirtatious mother go to impress her son's friends? Who knew arts and crafts would be so useful (or not) when it came to sexual encounters? What did this violent offender do once EMS had him in the back of their rig? Learn what happened to one patient after he tried to make his girlfriend a homemade Christmas gift. (Hint: It was painful!)<br /><br />So take a break from all the stress. Dive right in and hear from readers who are just as deliriously tired as you are. Take the you-time that you've earned after putting in those 70-hours, after cramming for that exam, and after your friends give you the, 'Can you not talk about that while I'm eating?' look.

Before you start reading, I'd like to tell you a little about what awaits you on the pages of the book.</p><p><strong>Ketogenic diets</strong> are gaining in prominence because they help people<u><strong> shed the extra pounds while maintaining muscle mass.</strong></u> This is possible because the diet causes one’s body to burn fat as an energy source. This controlled method of losing weight is much better than drastic means like crash dieting or even starving, as they have long-term negative side effects and likely will yield temporary results. With the help of ketogenic diet, one<u><strong></strong></u> can <u><strong>gain the right body equilibrium and stay fit as well.</strong></u></p><p><strong>A vegetarian diet</strong> <u><strong></strong></u><u><strong>provides rewarding health benefits</strong></u>, but finding the right nutritional balance can be a bit challenging. Although meat and other non-vegetarian food products tend to be rich in nutrient content, it is possible to achieve a healthy and nutritional diet by consuming only vegetarian foods.</p><p>To add to the challenge, many diet plans do not follow vegetarian standards by recommending a variety of non-vegetarian products. So, if you are tired of going through endless meal charts and finding that they do not suit your vegetarian lifestyle, we are here to help. Contrary to many meal charts that recommend meats and non-vegetarian products, this book will reveal the secrets to enjoying a strict yet robust vegetarian keto diet.</p><p>In this book, we are going to discuss<em> <strong>Lacto ovo vegetarian</strong></em> meals.

Phoebe Yates Levy Pember (1823 - 1913) was a member of a prominent American Jewish family from Charleston, South Carolina and a nurse and female administrator of Chimborazo Hospital at Richmond, Virginia during the American Civil War. She assumed the responsibility informally at the age of 39 and eventually over 15,000 patients came under her direct care during the war.<br /><br />Pember remained at Chimborazo until the Confederate surrender in April 1865. She published her memoir soon after the war, in March 1866, serialized in a Baltimore magazine called The Cosmopolite as "Reminiscences of A Southern Hospital. By Its Matron." The memoir would later be published in book form as A Southern Woman's Story: Life in Confederate Richmond, in 1879. <br /><br />The memoir, which details her daily life through anecdotes of the war years, remains one of the best sources for understanding the experiences and ideas of upper-class Southern Jewish women before and during the Civil War.

<h2><b>“Our need for many more of these girls is urgent, and this book is intended to tell a bit about the trials and tribulations, the fun and the thrills, to be experienced as a member of the Corps.”</b></h2><br /><br /><em>Helmets and Lipstick</em> is the first-hand account of Second Lieutenant Ruth Haskell, chronicling her time spent as a combat nurse with U.S. troops in North Africa during Operation Torch. <br /><br /><em>Helmets and Lipstick</em> also served as a call-to-action for the nurses in the U.S. who had not yet joined the war effort.<br /><br />From deployment to the journey to North Africa via Scotland and London, Lt. Haskell tells her story with a dry wit and humor, perfectly portraying the comradery between the nurses and the Allied soldiers fighting in North Africa at the time. <br /><br />She provides touching accounts of the lighter side of life in wartime, recalling the card games, dances and even Christmas celebrations that took place. <br /><br />But these nurses were members of the U.S. Army and went through the same trials and tribulations of war as the male soldiers. <br /><br />U.S. troops came under heavy fire throughout Operation Torch and Haskell’s group learned to nurse in these nearly impossible conditions, receiving tough training and expected to rise to the same high standards as the soldiers in combat. <br /><br /><em>Helmets and Lipstick</em>, which was first published at the height of the war in 1944, is a classic account of combat nursing in World War Two, an important addition to the literature of the war in North Africa and of the history of non-combatants in the Second World War.<br /><br /><br />

Unlike most CNA Study Guides, this Official CNA Study Guide boasts the most information, practice tests and more, for the <b>lowest price on the market</b>. </p><br /><h1>How The CNA Study Guide Can Help You</h1><br /><p>Getting a CNA certification can be a difficult process. First, you need to pass your written exam, and then you need to get through the practical portion as well. Although your certification course should help to give you the CNA building blocks, you’ll still need something to help put it all together. </p><br /><h2>This is where the Official CNA Study Guide can help!</h2><br /><p>Through this professionally structured CNA Study Guide, you’ll get key points from CNA professionals, study tips to help improve your score, and a layout to help you get more out of your studies in less time. </p><br /><p>In sum, this Certified Nursing Assistant Study Guide will help you and your studies become <b>more efficient and effective</b>.</p><br /><hr /><br /><h1>What the Official CNA Study Guide Will Provide</h1><br /><p>The Official CNA Study Guide was structured so give you the necessary tools to build upon your course work and help to focus your studies in the area you need more help with. </p><br /><p>To accomplish such a task, we’ve provided the following features inside the CNA study guide:<br /></p><ul><br /><li>1 Pretest</li><br /><li>2 Practice Tests with Answers</li><br /><li>Both Written and Critical Skills Coverage</li><br /><li>Lists of procedures and steps to take</li><br /><li>Complete coverage of the CNA NNAAP Standardized Testing</li><br /></ul><p></p><br /><h2>CNA Study Guide Benefits Break Down</h2><br /><p>The CNA Pretest has been designed to help you figure out where you are strongest and what subjects you need extra help with. This will ensure you spend the right amount of time on the right areas.</p><br /><p>The lists of procedures in this CNA Study Guide have been developed to help you prepare for all of the different practical factors you will most likely have to perform during your Skill Test set. The procedures in this CNA Study Guide will help to ensure you can quickly flip through them and get the right information and quickly move on to the next set with the swipe of a finger (if you’re using our ebook version) or turn of a page.</p><br /><p>Finally, at the end, we will have 2 full practice tests so that you can gauge whether or not you are fully ready for your final certification.

According to a result poll, over <b>27% of those that take the test, fail</b>!</p><br /><p>That means those students wasted their money and their time. This can be absolutely frustrating and cause many problems in the future. </p><br /><p>Another reason having a CNA Study Guide on hand is super important is that once you become a certified nursing assistant, you will only have certification for that particular state. So, if you move to another state at some point in your life, you will have to re-certify in that state. </p><br /><p>That may sound easy, considering you might have done it for years before moving…however, imagine taking the drivers test again after all those years of learning how to really drive a car. You probably don’t follow all of the rules, right? </p><br /><p>Well the same can happen to a CNA. They can develop the “get it done the right way” type attitude which won’t test well on the certification exam. </p><br /><hr /><br /><h2><br /><em><b>10 out of 10 must have for all CNA’s</b></em><br /><br />~CNA Exam Cram</h2><br /><hr /><br />
