The sad reality is that nurse bullying is a distraction from patient care.
We’ve likely all been there… Either as the target of nurse bullying or have been witness (perhaps a silent witness) to bullying taking place at work.
It does seem contradictory that someone can be both a nurse and a bully. So why does it happen at such significant rates? If we understand the reasons why nurse bullies choose their victims, we can take steps to protect ourselves while at work. And if we can understand the reasons behind a co-worker’s actions, we are more likely to intervene in a way that generates the desired results.
It is time now to take a stand. To stand up for yourself and others who have been disrespected, gossiped about, withholding expected patient information, or criticized in front of patients/families. Bullying can come in so many forms. In less than 90 minutes, you will learn proven strategies from expert Theresa Puckett PhD, RN, CNE, to help turn your department or unit in to a peaceful and enjoyable place to work.
