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?

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.
