Abstract

Tobacco dependence is a major health problem for persons with a serious mental illness (SMI). Nurses working with psychiatric clients often lack the knowledge, ability, and confidence to offer their clients meaningful, effective help to quit smoking. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of a tobacco education program on the perceived competence and motivation of baccalaureate nursing students (BSN) to intervene with SMI clients who use tobacco. The education program significantly improved the competence and motivation of BSN students to deliver cessation interventions to this vulnerable population of smokers.
