Relationship of specialty and access to substance use among registered nurses : an exploratory analysis.
Substance use patterns among nurses and women in general are understudied, especially how substance use relates to the work environment.
Using an anonymous survey mailed to a population based random sample of registered nurses, this study presents the first empirical evidence that working in a critical care specialty combined with easy workplace access to drugs is associated with a high likelihood of illicit drug use among nurses (O.R.=6.2).
