Nurses Feed Their Young

38% of nurses wanted to leave the bedside in 2022. Chronic staffing shortages, sustained heavy workloads since the global pandemic began in 2020, negative culture, feeling unappreciated, and lack of self-care all contribute to nurses leaving the bedside. Nurses want life balance, reasonable workloads and positive work environments. Yet, nurses continue to treat each other poorly with the attitude that “nurses eat their young.” Nursing cannot afford to wait any longer to change nursing culture and improve nursing work environments. This offering has been developed to educate nurses on how personality science and emotional intelligence can be used in nursing to improve both nursing culture and work environments.
