Course Overview

Author Michael York

In a time when bullying has become one of the most frowned-upon behaviors, why is it thriving in the world of nursing? We’ve all heard the saying that “Nurses eat their young”. It is a term that has been passed down the nursing ranks as each generation of nurses enters the workplace; unchanged and still true. We, as nurses, cannot permit such unhealthy and detrimental behavior to continue. In this course, we will discuss nurse bullying, why it happens, and what we can do to break the curse.
