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 evidence-based practice study was to educate advanced nurse practitioner students (APRN) on smoking information and techniques to assist clients with quitting smoking in the primary care setting.
