[Source National Association of School Nurses]
Vaping is impacting the nation’s youth at alarming rates. According to the 2020 National Youth Tobacco Survey, 19.6% of high school students and 4.7% of middle school students reported using e-cigarettes. To assist school nurses in addressing this issue, NASN has assembled a toolkit of information and resources to support school nurses in implementing evidence-based programs in their schools, including planning for sustainability and building collaborations with key stakeholders to successfully engage their school communities in tackling the topic of vaping head on.
Included in this kit is information on the following:
- Accessing the evidence regarding the risks of e-cigarette use;
- Creating a plan for your school;
- Developing, implementing and enforcing tobacco-free school policies that include e-cigarettes;
- Prevention and cessation support programs; and
- Communicating with parents and students
There is no cost for this toolkit but you will need to sign in to access. If you do not have a customer or member account with NASN, you may create an account for free
