"Best guidelines book available. It is great for NPs of any specialty, as well as CNMs, PAs, and other health professionals caring for women. This book is concise and well organized making it extremely easy to find information quickly. It gives direct and clear information about gynecological care for women throughout the age span. I have used numerous editions of this book for years and it is my number one recommendation for NP students and experienced NPs looking for the best guidelines book on the market.
To care for women a practitioner must understand the diversity and complexity of their lives and how these impact their wellness; this book does a remarkable job reflecting this."

"The ninth edition of Guidelines for Nurse Practitioners in Gynecologic Settings is a comprehensive text for advanced practice clinicians and students. Organized in outline format, each chapter presents the etiology, subjective, objective data, management and patient education. The outline format lends nicely to a quick scan for the busy clinician with clear explanations to guide practice. Highly recommended for clinicians working in gynecological settings."

"Once again Joellen W. Hawkins, Diane M. Roberto-Nichols, and J. Lynn Stanley-Haney's Guidelines for Nurse Practitioners in Gynecologic Settings, now in its ninth edition, is a must have for NPs practicing in such a setting. The book provides easy to find, up-to-date, evidence-based, and clinically sound guidelines for the busy NP providing gynecologic care for women. They succinctly detail important history and physical exam techniques, procedures, and how to manage results. Patient education materials are included, as are a Body Mass Index table, informed consent templates, a risk factor assessment for women and heart disease and a myriad of other useful appendices. NPs providing gynecologic care simply should not be without this resource!"
