|Title||‘Nurturing their Own’ or ‘Eating their Young’? Fostering Students’ capacity to address Nurse Bullying Behaviors|
The prevalence of bullying witnessed or experienced by nursing students is both alarming and unacceptable. Anecdotal and literature evidence indicates that sometimes as high as 90% of students are exposed to bullying. Experiencing bullying has been linked to lowered self-esteem, a lack of commitment to the profession, lowered performance and motivation, as well as attrition, decreased patient safety, adverse effects on nurses’ mental and physical health, and the perpetuation of bullying behaviours by those previously bullied.
Active, embodied learning opportunities enable students and other stakeholders to better understand bullying interactions, to empathize with those involved, as well as allowing them to develop their confidence and competence to manage bullying. To this end, a group of faculty and students will develop a ‘Train-the-Trainer’ video, Forum Theatre Workshops, Cognitive Rehearsal scripts, electronic manuals, and a series of 360-degree simulation videos.
