Purpose: This study explored the use of nursing students as tele-health counselors for smoking cessation in a college setting. Background: The CDC (2003) estimated over 440,000 deaths each year and $75 billion in direct medical costs from tobacco use. The Core Alcohol and Drug Survey (N=521) (State of Tobacco Usage Report, 2003) suggested a progression of tobacco use from a social pattern to a daily addiction from freshman status to senior status. This assessment supported the development of a smoking cessation program by the Nursing Department.
Methodology: A junior-level baccalaureate nursing class (N=19) was involved in developing smoking cessation materials into seven weekly online modules using Blackboard. After completing the course construction, the nursing students were instructed to use therapeutic communication and behavior change theory to interact online with the subjects (N=4). The assignment included discussion boards and responding to the subjects within 24-48 hours. The course was monitored by the clinical instructor, and discussed in a clinical post-conference setting. Results: The access statistics showed a total of 1,310 hits from 1/1/04-3/19/04.The nursing student evaluations were mixed. The students liked: "creating the power points in class", "communicating therapeutically", "trying something new and mentoring someone", learning how to post on Blackboard, developing technology skills, the wellness setting, and "helping people stop smoking". Five of the 19 students reported no sense of being uncomfortable. Several students reported being uncomfortable with using therapeutic communication and talking to someone who they did not know. The students generally reported that the technology effective. Limitations were limited subject participation and lack of pre-test data. Implications: Smoking cessation counseling on Blackboard has a great potential to reach the college aged student by providing user-friendly accessibility. This study provided the preliminary educational data for expanding this pedagogical approach to nursing tele-health delivery.
