Is the Book of Nahum in the Catholic Bible?

My Moms-in-Touch group used a verse from the Book of Nahum today. I was unfamiliar with this ancient work. Has it ever been included in bible translations that the Catholic Church would recognize? If not, why? Do Protestant Churches include it in their translations?

Dear auntie,

The Book of Nahum is indeed in the Catholic Bible. You will find it between Micah and Habakkuk.
