A breathtaking statistic that cannot be ignored: 

1 in 4 nurses are assaulted in the workplace.

Workplace violence against nurses happens every day.

In 2022, the rate of assaults in U.S. hospitals increased by 23%. A recent study of RNs found a significant proportion of nurses who cared for patients with COVID-19 experienced more physical violence and verbal abuse and had more difficulty in reporting the incidents to management.

These statistics attest to the magnitude of this serious problem that nurses face every day.

Workplace violence can be prevented, and nurses can lead the way.

This on-demand webinar addresses what every nurse needs to know about the challenge of workplace violence against nurses. Topics to be addressed include:

  • The scope and cost of WPV in healthcare for nurses, patients, and healthcare organizations
  • Common factors related to organizational culture that can prevent implementation of successful WPV programs
  • Core components of a program to manage and prevent WPV
  • What you can do to support effectiveness and sustainability of a WPV program and culture of worker and patient safety
  • Resources from ANA and other sources that nurses can access to enhance or develop a WPV program

Who should attend:  All nurses in all practice settings

Our Presenter: Lynda Enos RN, MS, COHN-S, CPE
