The purpose of this presentation is to illustrate how faculty in a nursing school have integrated alcohol-related content in prelicensure and master’s curricula. The curricular map will be used to demonstrate how specific teaching/learning modules have been integrated across the nursing curricula.
Methods: Curricular mapping has been completed to guide the placement and timing of teaching/learning modules related to alcohol and other substance use. Learning objectives were developed for multiple educational modules, including screening, motivational interviewing, brief intervention, referral to treatment, neurobiology, and FDA-approved medications for alcohol use disorder. In turn, each module and respective objectives were mapped to the particular course where it is delivered. Faculty subject matter experts developed each module and in turn were filmed in delivery of the content. The videos ensure that all students receive the same information and that the education and delivery are sustainable. Faculty subject matter experts also worked with actors to develop videos of nurse-delivered screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment. These videos serve as exemplars for students prior to their delivery of these strategies in the clinical setting.
Results: Compared with the current amount of content in nursing curricula in the US, integrating content in courses has resulted in a 3-fold increase in exposure.
Conclusion: The proposed implementation model can be utilized by nurse educators wishing to provide an optimal integrative program of alcohol education.
