This presentation will detail the development, execution, and evaluation of a collaborative exercise between nursing and counseling students in a small state university. The students used SBIRT and Motivational Interviewing to work collaboratively with simulated patients. Students and faculty were surprised at the different approaches used to achieve the same objectives. The exercise fostered a new understanding of collaboration between students in two different health professions.
