HI, Welcome to our blogspot.   The goal of this Blog is to share pearls, unique treatment plans, guidelines, notes , charts that can be cut and taped and more…..


The Practice Notebooks were originally developed in 2006.  The Practice Notebook was created out of a need to keep pearls, that you gather along the way, in an organized system, that fits in your lab coat.  A double pocket folder for storage.  The book contains 16 sections divided by systems.


The Medical Practice Notebook is geared for MD-DO-NP-PA.

The Nursing Practice Notebook also has 16 sections and geared for hospital nurses.


Medical Assistant Practice Notebook is divided by 12 MA specific sections.  It is a perfect book to write down or cut and tape frequently misspelled words, surgical prep lists, drug calculations, immunizations and etc


Be as creative as you want with your book.  Cut and tape charts, write down treatment plans that you don’t want to forget, lab tests needed for abnormal lab values and etc.
