"It's about time that nurses have a practical and timely book for assessing and eliminating the horizontal violence that marks so much of our professional life. This book focuses on the origin and nature of the mutual violence and negativity (horizontal hostility) we have exhibited with each other and upon our colleagues for so long. It suggests ways to deal with it and move toward more healthy styles of relationship and interaction. I simply cannot imagine a nurse (or anyone for that matter) who cannot benefit from using this resource. If you haven't obtained it yet, get it now; you will find here something that will truly add value to your personal and professional development." --Tim Porter-O'Grady, EdD, APRN, FAAN, nationally respected expert Begin your intervention with Ending Nurse-to-Nurse Hostility: Why Nurses Eat Their Young and Each Other. Researchers report that verbal abuse contributes to up to 24% of staff turnover and 42% of nurse administrator turnover. To make matters worse, studies indicate that approximately 60% of newly registered nurses leave their first position within six months because of some form of horizontal hostility. With the nursing shortage and high turnover rates affecting nearly every facility, it is imperative that nurse leaders determine, assess, and eliminate the factors that influence and perpetuate the problems facing the nursing profession today.
