Let Me Tell You a Story: Exploring Vignettes to Study Bullying

Christopher Demezier, Joy Longo


Bullying is defined as actions and behaviors
that threaten interpersonal connections (McNamara,
2012). Examples of bullying include verbal abuse, sexual
harassment, and physical altercations (McNamara, 2012).
As a result of bullying, a nurse may have gastrointestinal
complications, cardiovascular irregularities, and even
suicidal ideations (McNamara, 2012; Thompson, 2013).
As a result, nurses are not able to deliver optimal nursing
care (Christie & Jones, 2014). Nurses who are unable to
perform their job due to bullying place patients at risk for
negative outcomes.
