What Nurses Know... Menopause: The Answers You Need from the People You Trust

Karen Roush, RN, MSN, FNP, BC
New York; Demos Health: 2011
231 pages

Nurses are experts at translating knowledge for patients. Rouse, a registered nurse, has written this book for women experiencing this bewildering time in life through the eyes of a nurse. The easy-to-read text mixes understandable explanations with solid medical knowledge. What Nurses Know outlines the physiology of menopause, its symptoms, and includes tips and recommendations for its management.

The symptoms reviewed range from hot flashes and night sweats to decreased libido and sleep disturbances. The book also includes an honest appraisal of the benefits and risks of hormone therapy. There are sidebars from nurses and quotes from women about their experiences.

Overall, What Nurses Know is an enjoyable, informative read and highly recommended.
