This qualitative descriptive study explored nurses’ experience of being bullied and examined their coping strategies. A purposive sample of 18 registered nurses who self-identified as being targets of bullying behavior was used. The authors found that nurses used a variety of coping strategies. An understanding of these strategies can assist staff development educators to develop interventions to eliminate this pervasive problem.
