Nursing Faculty Education Guide (NFEG)



The RNAO has developed the "Nursing Faculty Education Guide (NFEG): Tobacco Use and Associated Health Risks"  to assist Nurse Educators in integrating smoking cessation content into the curriculum.

The goals for the Guide are as follows:

Facilitate the seamless integration of the RNAO Best Practice Guideline Integrating Smoking Cessation into Daily Nursing Practice (RNAO, 2007) into nursing education programs, resulting in widespread integration of evidence-based tobacco cessation practices among nurses and nursing students.

  • Reinforce nurses’ role in tobacco prevention, protection and cessation.
  • Contribute to the health of Canadians by ensuring that nursing students are equipped with the knowledge of smoking cessation evidence-based practices.
