    These guidelines are great and easy to incorporate into practice. The chapters are straight and to the point not a lot of fluff you have to read through to find what is really important. I am a new FNP and it is a great reference. It is also a plus that it is electronic, I have what I need at all times without the weight of a book. I love it.
