Abstract

Most nursing programs lack curriculum on substance use. This project evaluated 3 didactic instructional methods for teaching baccalaureate nursing students about screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment for substance use. In-person, asynchronous narrated slides and interactive online instructional methods were all effective in developing students’ competency; however, active learning methods (in-person and interactive online course) were more effective in changing students’ attitudes about their role in screening and intervening for drug use.
