Definitely worth the purchase.“This is a guide which will stay with you during your whole nursing program...so do not rent you must buy it and think of it as a documentation bible!”—Barbie

Great resource for NP/PA school.“Purchased this for my NP program. The book made writing SOAP notes and H&Ps very simple! Would recommend as a great resource”—Dr. Jon

Love this! “Right down to it charting instructions and guidance. Even discusses codes and other factors of charting I had not taken into such deep account before. … this book helped me understand how much more charting, other than SOAP's, must be completed for compliance standards. I feel this book is for just about everyone who is learning to chart as a reimbursable provider. —D. Conley
