Horizontal Violence

Socialization into the profession of nursing has often been described as “nurses eating their young”, “baptism by fire”, “sinking or swimming”. These behaviors, now called horizontal violence, were tolerated as a rite of passage. With concerns for patient safety, nurse recruitment and retention, and the integrity for the nursing profession, the profession aims to increase awareness of horizontal violence with the goal of eliminating it. This presentation will describe horizontal violence and measures to combat it.
