School Nurses Help Teens Quit… In the Short-Term
Teenage students who talk with a school nurse about quitting smoking are less likely to be smoking in three months, according to a new study on smoking cessation.
In the study of 1,000 Massechusetts teens, 11% of teens who spoke with a school nurse at four weekly sessions were still not smoking after three months, as compared to 6% of teens who only received anti-smoking materials.
