Abstract

Various factors have compelled nurse educators to address the lack of substance use-related content in nursing curriculum. Initiatives to add this content are often met with resistance because of an already crowded curriculum. This article describes a 4-phase process that guided the integration of this specialty content into a prelicensure nursing curriculum and a master's level advanced practice nursing curriculum. Lessons learned and recommendations from those experiences are provided to guide nurse educators undertaking similar efforts.
