Smoking cessation classes provided by UNCG Nursing students

Smoking has been on the decline in recent years with fewer adult smokers and even fewer adolescents’ smokers than ever before. According to the Centers for Disease Control, around 69 percent of adult smokers wanted to quit in the past year, with many having tried multiple times to quit.

This semester a group of eight Nursing 425 students along with several current and former RN to BSN 2+ students conducted four weeks of smoking cessation classes for Hampton Homes.

Another group of NUR 425 students will provide four more weeks of Smoking Cessation classes at UNCG. Quit for Life will be offered each Monday in November from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the Moore Nursing Building, Room 317. Everyone is invited to come – students and employees, family and friends – to learn about smoking cessation and ways to Quit for Life.
