"Evaluating Horizontal Violence and Bullying in the Nursing Workforce of an Oncology and Outpatient Clinic Academic Center”, LaToya Lewis-Pierre, Ed.D-CI, MSN, RN, PI

Horizontal violence (HV) and bullying in the workplace is a dysfunctional behavior that can affect nursing staff and patient care on multiple levels. Horizontal violence (HV) or bullying can lead to negative feelings and symptoms that include fear, loss of self-esteem, anxiety, and depression. These behaviors influence the work environment by decreasing work satisfaction, employee engagement, and quality patient care. This study will assess HV/bullying at several organizational levels within an oncology and outpatient clinic academic center (i.e., administration, staff, and education).
