OBJECTIVE: To provide an overview of the etiology, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and long-term survivorship concerns surrounding cervical cancer.

DATA SOURCES: A review of articles dated 2006-2018 from PubMed.

CONCLUSION: The landscape for cervical cancer is changing dramatically because of vaccine-driven prevention. Despite these advances, there are both newly diagnosed individuals as well as survivors of cervical cancer who require continued evidence-based care.

IMPLICATION FOR NURSING PRACTICE: Nurses are integral in diverse settings to promote prevention through timely vaccination, as well as to educate patients about the signs, symptoms, and management of cervical cancer when it occurs.
