Integrating Mental Health and Addiction into the Undergraduate Nursing Curriculum
The purpose of the RNAO Nurse Educator Mental Health and Addiction Resource is primarily to support educators with effectively integrating mental health and addiction knowledge and skills into the undergraduate nursing curriculum. The resource is based on the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) and the Canadian Federation of Mental Health Nurses (CFMHN) Entry-to- Practice Mental Health and Addiction Competencies for Undergraduate Nursing Education in Canada (2015) and supporting research. Each section of the resource has been intentionally aligned with the competencies.
