Training Overview Description

It exists – and we all know we have to do something about it. Bullying is one of the most intractable challenges nursing leaders face in all settings – one that proves very resistant to our many well-intentioned efforts. A 2018 survey of ANA members revealed that 87% of the respondents had experienced bullying at least once in their careers.

This live, free and interactive webinar will highlight actions you can take IMMEDIATELY to begin to lessen bullying and its negative impact on your staff. Don’t miss this opportunity to join an intimate conversation with an accomplished nursing leader about one of our profession’s most significant challenges.

Topics include:

  • Seemingly small actions you can take right now to begin to successfully address bullying
  • How to get your staff involved in positive, productive ways
  • Supporting and helping the most vulnerable populations: Early career and older RNs
  • How “down in the weeds” do you get?: How to recognize what is going on and intervene when you are removed from day-to-day bullying situations
  • Self inventory and knowing how you are perceived: You can’t bully others into being more civil

Bullying will probably never be completely eliminated. Dramatically lowering the incidence of bullying, however, starts with the leader. There are actions you can take to begin, little by little, over time, to lessen the occurrences of bullying as well as provide help and support to the RNs who are vulnerable to being bullied. This webinar will give you valuable tools to begin to make a difference.
