New Nurses’ Experience with Lateral Violence and Their Decision to Remain in Nursing

Join us for a discussion of the lived experiences of new nurses and their decision to remain in nursing despite experiencing lateral violence in the workplace.

Through one-on-one interviews, six themes emerge, including:

  1. The patients
  2. I needed the experience
  3. I got counseling
  4. There was an end
  5. I cried
  6. Nothing changed.

Lateral violence or bullying in nursing is the antithesis of caring and a profound, pervasive global concern. Survivors of lateral violence exhibit significant negative emotional and physical effects. Approximately one-third of new nurses leave the profession within the first 3 years of practice, citing lateral violence as a determining factor. This study explored the reasons new nurses decided to remain in the profession despite their experiences.
