Abstract

Substance use disorder (SUD) among nurses is a serious practice issue that poses a significant risk to patients and nurses. However, the topic of SUD is inadequately addressed in nursing education. A comprehensive education strategy was implemented and evaluated in 2 prelicensure nursing programs to improve nursing students' knowledge, skills, and attitudes about SUD among nurses.
