Substance use disorder (SUD) is a significant problem for millions of Americans. The incidence of SUDs among nurses and nursing students is thought to be like that found in the general population. Some studies suggest increases in substance use among college students given stressors related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Nurses are in unique positions to care for one another as we care for our patients. Identification, referral, and treatment of SUDs can prevent both nurses and nursing students from terminating their careers or nursing programs of study. The purposes of this article were to increase nurses' knowledge of SUDs among nurses and nursing students, provide an organizing framework for identification of substance problems among nurses/nursing students, and discuss ways to create a culture of support and recovery for nurses/nursing students with SUDs.
