Abstract

Abstract The predicted shortfall of primary care physicians and the millions of newly insured beginning in 2014 call for an increase in the number of advanced practice nurses (1). Advanced practice nurses (APRN) can significantly improve their clients’ quality of life and increase their life expectancy through tobacco cessation education. The purpose of this study was to educate APRN students on smoking information and techniques to assist clients with quitting smoking in the primary care setting. Key terms: Advanced practice nursing; Advanced practice nursing education; Tobacco Cessation; Tobacco education
