This paper presents an outline for a teaching project in which the author will be teaching low-income women, many of whom are smokers and some who have been diagnosed with the human Papillomavirus, the importance of getting annual pap smear exams and how they are to prepare for these exams.

From the Paper:

"The topic of this teaching project is to explain what a Pap smear is, the importance of the test, and how to prepare for it. I chose this topic because, it has been found that women who elect to have annual pap smears have avoided cervical cancer, which can be life threatening. It is important for nurses to teach about pap smears because many people fail to realize the value of preventive measures in maintaining good health. Nurses should teach their patients about this type of healthcare issue because if patients do not prepare, for the test, their results could be incorrect and frequently these lessons make a difference in a patient's quality of life. Patients see nurses more often than they see other healthcare professionals. Therefore, they depend on their nurses to educate them."
