LOPES, Gertrudes Teixeira et al. Nursing students' conceptions about the user of drugs. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2009, vol.62, n.4, pp.518-523. ISSN 0034-7167.

STUDY'S OBJECT: Conceptions of nursing students on the approach to the drugs user. OBJECTIVES: To describe the conceptions of nursing students about the user of drugs. METHOD: Descriptive-exploratory study carried out with 321 students from 15 private nursing schools in the state of Rio de Janeiro. The scale of attitudes and beliefs NEADA was used to obtain the data between June 2006 and August 2007. The results demonstrate that the difficulties in dealing with the client who is a drug user are real, but the personal limitations of professionals in work with this kind of client still permeate the assistance, influencing care.

Keywords : Nursing; Students, nursing; Street drugs.
