Tobacco Free Nurses recognizes the power that the 3 million nurses in the US can have in making difference in the nation’s efforts to combat the tobacco epidemic and seeks to foster the pivotal role of nurses in tobacco control.
On this website nurses will find numerous resources specifically targeted to nurses, including a library of references written by or about nurses and tobacco control, evidence-based resources to use in clinical practice, media materials for free download with various fact sheets about nurses and smoking. Please note that the “Helping Smokers Quit” tab is only available to nurses participating in one of our current research studies.
A free resource, which has proven to be effective in helping many people quit, is the national telephone Quitline, 1-800-Quit Now (800-784-8669). Callers receive one-on-one counseling and follow up. Where available, you will be referred to your state’s quitline.
