Dear Colleague,

Women's health – one of my favorite subjects!  From critical care nursing, I went back to school for my MSN in women’s health after realizing how so many illnesses present differently in women. Then of course, there exists a myriad of issues specific to women for which we, as nurses, are in a perfect position to provide care and education.

Several of Lippincott's nursing journals have recent feature articles related to women’s health. From a comprehensive assessment of major body systems with a special emphasis on attention to female needs to contraceptive options to managing menopause, you’ll learn a wide spectrum of information to help you provide the best for the women in your care! Enjoy the collection of articles in More Resources and for even more content, be sure to check out our Women’s Health CE collection, as well as Special Report: Bone and Joint Health and Special Report: Epilepsy (brought to you by HealthyWomen and

Our next issue will have a selection of articles especially for National Nurses in Staff Development Week! See you then!
