Time & Location
About the Event
*** 1.5 CEUs Provided ***
Uncivil and hostile behaviors are real phenomena in healthcare. The persons most impacted are students and new graduate nurses. This presentation outlines an innovative civil behavior seminar for senior graduating and new nurses to manage inappropriate behaviors as they enter our proud profession. Novice nurses may not have the skills needed to mitigate workplace bullying, so there is an urgent need for awareness of uncivil behavior upon employment, but also a compass to navigate both the first year and to build healthy relationships.
- Discuss how nurse incivility is unique for the student and the new graduate nurse.
- Describe 3 strategies that have the potential to prevent nurse-to-nurse incivility and bullying.
- Outline 2 key survival skills to mitigate hostile behaviors in the workplace.
