Description

Advantedge Education is pleased to have teamed up with Healthcare Learning Innovations and RTConnections to offer Strategies to Stop the Cycle of Nurse Bullying.

Have you ever witnessed or experienced bullying in the workplace? Sixty percent (60%) of all new nurses quit their first job within the first 6 months due to the bad behavior of their co-workers. Almost half of graduating nurses are concerned about becoming the target of workplace bullying in their first job. Nurse bullying is a serious problem that needs to be addressed.

Working with a bully distracts nurses from patient care.

Globally, bullying costs organizations $5 to $6 billion dollars a year, but patients pay the ultimate price for bullying with their outcomes. Organizations with a high rate of bullying have worse patient outcomes.
