Are You Being Bullied?

It’s day 7 of the #EndNurseAbuse challenge.

If someone is bullying you, or making your work life difficult, speak up! If you feel prepared and well equipped, discuss your concerns with the person one-on-one (but in a safe, private place, free from interruptions).

Stay calm, explain how you feel, and make a request for how you wish to be addressed. Raising the issue may help the person understand there’s an issue. If the uncivil behavior or bullying doesn’t stop, enlist support from your supervisor to address the situation.  

Print out this respectful conversations pocket card from the PACERS Civility Toolkit to help you guide the conversation. Let us know if you find it helpful and share your experiences with us here or let us know in our discussion, in our Facebook group or reply to us on twitter.
