Abstract: Abstract: In response to the current opioid epidemic, there is a dire need to expand treatment for persons with substance use disorders (SUD). Nursing students in Traditional Undergraduate Baccalaureate Nursing programs will be providing patient care in a variety of settings and should be prepared to screen and provide brief interventions for persons with SUDs. A survey conducted with BSN Colleges asked faculty to assess substance abuse training throughout their curricula, results were inconclusive. Utilizing a pre-test/post-test design, a 90-minute Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment educational intervention will be offered to improve knowledge and confidence in nursing students.
