March 1 2012 Nursing Newsletter


Greetings to all Nurses and those who are interested in Nursing! It's hard to believe its March already. Where does the time fly?

Soon we will start receiving invitations to celebrate graduations. I remember how excited I was as the end of my senior year of nursing school was coming to a close and I was able to start inviting family and friends to my graduation. What an exciting and nervous time it was. But the last thing I thought of was that I might be met with horizontal violence when I took my first job as an RN. Unfortunately, for many, this is a reality which leads to a decision to leave a profession one has trained for and excited to enter. Did you know that horizontal violence is the most cited reason new nurses leave the profession within the first year of gaining licensure? Let's stop the flow of those leaving the profession due to this issue.

Here's the latest article from the Nursing site at BellaOnline.com.

Nurse safety is an important issue in nursing. The World Health Organization and Joint Commission have highlighted the need to address incivility in nursing, otherwise known as horizontal violence, lateral violence, or "eating our young". We must address these issues in ourselves and in our work areas so that the entire profession can change. Why are we, a caring profession, so uncaring to each other?

I would love to hear of success stories in your work areas of ways you have tackled horizontal violence and how it has changed the work atmosphere and care given to patients.

Horizontal Violence and Incivility in Nursing
What is horizontal violence? Why is a caring profession not nurturing those new to the profession? Let's look at some steps to support those victims of incivility or horizontal violence and improve not only morale but the care we give our patients. Caring for others includes fellow nurses.

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!
