RODRIGUES, Samuel Barroso  and  SOUZA, Jacqueline de. Attitudes of undergraduate novice nursing students before alcoholic patients. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2018, vol.14, n.1, pp. 37-44. ISSN 1806-6976.

OBJECTIVE: to analyze the attitudes of novice nursing students before alcoholic patients. METHOD: qualitative quantitative study with application of the Scale of attitudes toward alcohol and alcoholism, a socio-demographic questionnaire, and a realistic simulation. RESULTS: the attitudes were positive and there was a significant association between attitude and age of the students (p = 0.014). Three categories were identified: 1) Aspects of behavioral nature; 2) Aspects of conceptual nature; and 3) Aspects of emotional nature. CONCLUSION: it is important to know the attitudes of students before alcoholic people by means of qualitative approaches so that educational practices may ensure a more appropriate preparation of students to provide care to this specific clientele.
