Incidence of workplace bullying among nurse managers

By: Judy Mathias

Editor’s Note

Nurse managers are recipients of workplace bullying, coming from executive nurse leaders, clinical nurses, and their management peers, this study finds.

In this survey of nurse managers across the US, 35% said they had been a target of workplace bullying with severity levels ranging from occasional to severe.

Executive nurse leaders were the primary perpetrators with the downward direction being the most prominent.

The findings are important because workplace bullying is linked to intent to leave, turnover, and harmful emotional and physical effects, the authors say.
