To wit: 15% of nurses smoke, whereas only 4% of physicians do. (The Rhode Island College of Nursing has just banned smoking on campus AND by any of its students in uniform, while “representing” the school, the dean told me the other day. It’s a good start.)</p> Tue, 09 Oct 2012 04:00:00 +0000 Kristin Gourlay 8284 at http://ripr.org
