In Part 1 of this article, published in the February 2010 issue, the problem of drinking game participation by U.S. college students was described. College students may play these games for reasons of peer acceptance and social interaction. Unfortunately, approximately two thirds of U.S. college students participate in this risky binge drinking behavior, from which serious consequences and harms can result. In this article, implications for community and mental health nurses are discussed. Nurses in a variety of settings have unique opportunities to educate, counsel, treat, and refer these students regarding the risks and protections of this behavior.
