Course Description:

This reference work is intended to serve as a resource for nurses who may have a concern regarding their own use of substances or a colleague’s behavior associated with substance use. It refers specifically to laws and programs available in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, but can be used as a starting point for nurses anywhere. Nurses outside the Commonwealth are encouraged to refer to their individual state laws, nurse practice acts, professional associations, and/or union agreements and contracts.

The guide has four purposes:
(1) To improve understanding of substance use problems in the nursing profession.
(2) To provide a framework for collective bargaining representatives and co-workers who assist colleagues with substance use problems and issues.
(3) To outline a process that can guide and assist colleagues toward recovery.
(4) To provide a set of recommendations for nurses to address substance use in the workplace.

This course is based upon material published by the Massachusetts Nurses Association, in conjunction with National Nurses United, and is available as an open access article.

This course on nurses who experience substance use problems is designed for social workers, professional counselors, psychologists, nurses, and substance abuse counselors, who do clinical work. This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their understanding of impaired practice in nursing. The course material includes an algorithm for assisting nurses with substance use problems, as well as resources and legal considerations. It may also be useful for licensed clinicians who require clinical continuing education courses for license renewal.

Authors: Massachusetts Nurses Association, National Nurses United
