As Opioid Overdoses Increase, Nursing Students at Sage Learn to Administer Naloxone



Twenty Nursing students in their senior year at The Sage Colleges will be trained to recognize the warning signs of an opioid overdose, and to administer naloxone, a medication that can treat an overdose. Kelsey M. Sargood, public health educator at the Rensselaer County Department of Health, will lead the training.

Students who complete the training will receive a kit containing naloxone and caregiver protection tools. In April, the U.S. Surgeon General issued an advisory on opioid overdose that emphasized “knowing how to use naloxone and keeping it within reach can save a life.”

Sage has offered a naloxone education class every semester since 2016. “To date, we have educated more than 200 nurses and the entire Nursing faculty,” said Glenda Kelman, Nursing professor and chair of the Nursing department at The Sage Colleges. “We want all of our faculty and students have the most advanced and up-to-date training. We work very closely with the entire healthcare community, and are proud to collaborate with the Rensselaer County Department of Health to prepare future nurses to recognize opioid overdose and respond with naloxone.”
