Abstract

Tobacco use is a major health risk that requires a comprehensive response by healthcare professionals. Nurse educators can contribute to the reduction of tobacco use by educating nursing students about tobacco use and smoking cessation strategies. The authors examine the breadth and depth of tobacco cessation content in Kansas registered nursing programs providing insight into the content and resources needed to teach nursing faculty and students how to assist individuals in tobacco use cessation.
