CEU Course Description
The Controlled Substances Act (CSA) places all substance which were in some manner regulated under existing federal law into one of five schedules. This placement is based upon the substance's medical use, potential for abuse, and safety or dependence liability. The Act also provides a mechanism for substances to be controlled or decontrolled. That being said, this course provides nurses with an overview of the controlled substances act; the different drug classes; narcotics such as heroin, hydromorphone, methadone, morphine, opium, and oxycodone; stimulants such as amphetamines, cocaine, khat, and methamphetamine; and depressants such as barbiturates.
