  1. This is great! I wish I was a member of ANA (soon enough 🙂 so that I could take a look at this issue. It’s scary to think that we aren’t really taught about lateral violence in nursing school – even though many of my friends have already dealt with this issue during clinicals. I feel that I am so unprepared to deal with such an issue – what do I even do if someone is bullying me at my first job? Do I even say anything with the fear of “stepping on people’s toes”?

    1. The best advice I can give you is to be respectful and considerate to everyone you encounter at work. Ease into your role as a nurse and within the department.
      Be cautious of things you say and opinions you have. What may be a harmless statement to you, may be offensive to someone else.
      If you feel that someone is bullying you, I do recommend you approach them privately and ask if you have done something to offend them. You will likely be able to tell based upon their response if there will be a continued problem. If this conversation does not solve it, then involve your manager sooner rather than later! No one deserves to be a victim. You have just as much right to practice as a nurse than any of them and should not be made to feel like less of a nurse or person simply because you are new.
      Julia, it doesn’t happen to everyone, so don’t start out looking for it. But if it does, stand up for yourself! You and your patients deserve it!
