OLIVEIRA, Elias Barbosa de  and  FUREGATO, Antonia Regina Ferreira. Nursing students' work, a risk factor for the consumption of alcohol and other drugs. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2008, vol.16, n.spe, pp.565-571. ISSN 1518-8345.

This descriptive, qualitative study aims to describe risk factors, in the work environment, for the consumption of alcohol and other drugs, and also to confirm the importance of protective factors. Interview technique was used with 51 nursing students at the Rio de Janeiro State University, who work in the city's health services. RESULTS: students related work as a risk factor for the consumption of drugs such as alcohol, cigarettes and anxiolytics. We conclude that working with participative methodologies, valuing student's former experiences, family and group life, and individual characteristics are essential in the preventive approach. Attention to protective factors is recommended.

Keywords : nursing; alcoholic beverages; anti-anxiety agents; students, nursing.
