- "Sounds like you and your friends are having a fun time on the weekend!"

- "Having a party with your friends can be fun, just be aware that drinking can lead to not being in control of your body and possibly put you in some really bad situations. I would love to talk about what could go wrong if you'd like."

- "You are not of age to drink so you better stop before you get in trouble!"

- "Teenage girls who drink end up pregnant or in jail, is that the kind of life you want?"


Peer pressure in the late teens is part of developement and growth. The nurse should encourage the teenager to do what is right by reminding her of consequences that can be sometimes hard to grasps cognitively at 17. The nurse should not yell at the teenager or make her feel like she can't confide in the nurse.
