This book discusses the phenomenon that has dogged the nursing profession for decades but that is only now getting the serious study and discussion it deserves: the tendency to "eat our young." The book explains the history of nurse bullying, theories about why it occurs, why the problem is growing, how it damages the profession, and what can be done to prevent it. It is written in a conversational style and focuses on practical information using real-life examples to highlight important points. Includes brief, sample dialogues that nurse readers can use to defuse or prevent bullying behaviors and strategies to promote a more positive work environment.
