    We take care of patients with cardiac and respiratory problems. I have patients, whom, despite their respiratory diseases, would still go down and have a smoke. I thought to myself that this course will be very applicable to my unit, and I am not mistaken.

    Enhancing my skills and knowledge base to better serve patients in my nursing career. Seeking to provide better guidance and support to patients struggling with tobacco addiction or those looking to prevent cancer. As well as having personal experiences, either through family or friends, with tobacco-related illnesses or cancer, motivating you to learn more and make a positive impact.

    - Emilia-Ioana P. (Hemodialysis Nurse)

  • ★★★★☆

    In emergency nursing, I do not have a lot of time to spend with each patient. The minimal method would be easy to do. A lot of my patients are smokers. I felt that I wasn't knowledgeable enough in this subject. Also the price was reasonable and I like that this is an online training.

    - Laurence P. (Emergency Nurse)

  • ★★★★★

    My clinical job affords me the time to sit and discuss with patient various reasons for life choices they employ. I find patients in oncology very receptive to implementing new lifestyle strategies if they believe it will have a positive effect on their treatment they are receiving for cancer. Need hours for order of nurses. Also spouse is a smoker. Recommended by a colleague.
