The spiral binding is great, but this is really too thick and bulky to carry in a pocket.
The assessment chapter is great, as is the chapter on complementary medicine. Unfortunately, the lab sectioin gives values in the American system of measurement, not SI values. Similarly, the screening chapter uses US guidelines for screening, which differ from guidelines found in most Canadian Provinces. Np Notes: Nurse Practitioner's Clinical Pocket Guide

HASH(0xa3b011d4) out of 5 stars Great NP Pocket Guide Dec 11 2009
By Terry South - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
After much anticipation I finally received NP Notes which is a very nice clinical pocket guide. It is compact and will easily fit into your lab coat pocket, this little gem will be my pocket companion for years to come. They have produced a remarkable waterproof and reusable guide that allows you to write on the pages with a pen and then if you want to remove any of the written information or notes you made, simply take an alcohol pad and wipe the page clean. They have also provided on the third page a place to add sticky notes of 2 7/8 x 2 7/8. The tabs at the bottom are wonderful and allow easy access to the sections you need to find in a hurry. The tabbed sections include Screening, Assess, Labs, Differential Diagnosis which is abbreviated Diff Dx, they also have a Billing & Coding section, Meds, Complementary and Alternative Therapies also abbreviated as CAM, and a Tools section. The guide has a total of 260 pages that is packed with so much information that is pertinent to the field of nurse practitioners. This is one of the best purchases I have made and will use this on a daily basis throughout school and my career. This is a must for every nurse practitioner student as well as the practicing nurse practitioner. Highly recommend, I LOVE this pocket guide!

The back of the guide states:
The vital information you need!
HIPPA-compliant, write-on/wipe-off pages
Portable, indispensable, and pocket-sized.

HASH(0xa3b01600) out of 5 stars Excellent Oct. 26 2010

Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I liked having these books for any specialty I've worked in. The NP version seems to cover all of the basics of working as an NP, including some icd coding, diagnosing, assessment, all geared toward NP practice. Highly recommended.

This is a great pocket guide for quick reference. There is a LOT of information packed into this small package, and am looking forward to using it in my final semester of my FNP program and into my early practice.

HASH(0xa3b01720) out of 5 stars Handy pocket guide March 27 2011
By Katt978 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This guide fits nicely in my labcoat pocket. It covers some basic info and has some handy guides (labs- high and low, SOAP note charting, H&P's) I would recommend this for NP students or any new NP's who are just starting out. Wouldn't be too useful to NP's with more than a year or two experience, in my opinion.

HASH(0xa3b01918) out of 5 stars Good for the student, not so much the practitioner. Dec 27 2011
By Oscar Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
NP Notes is a love/hate type of thing. For one, it gives good information and useful information. But on the other hand, much of it can be found already at the nurses station or from the floor clerk. Lab values should either be memorized or are available on the blood work as the reports come back. For Dx, only basic and obvious s/sx are listed making it redundant to be included.

Recommendation: its a good resource if you're a student, but you'll quickly outgrow and surpass the information that it provides.
