Hands-on help from the
experts on the front lines

Whether you call your doctor's office with a problem, make a visit, or are treated in a hospital, chances are a nurse will answer your questions, skillfully directing you to the care you need. That's because nurses provide more hands-on care than any other health care professional. Ask a Nurse draws on the collective expertise of more than 550 nursing schools and 100 practicing nurses nationwide to bring you treatment advice for a wide range of physical complaints, from acne to heartburn to wheezing. This exhaustive resource includes
A comprehensive A-to-Z directory that answers questions about common ailments
Separate sections on health issues unique to men, women, and children
A complete guide to consumer rights
Plus advice on choosing a reliable pharmacist, putting together a home medical kit, making a hospital stay more comfortable, and more!

Every piece of advice was written by dedicated professionals who spend their days either caring for patients or training other nurses how to do so. They can tell you what works and what doesn't; when you need a doctor's care and what you can treat yourself. There is no better resource for practical health advice, so go ahead, ask a nurse!
