Around 16% said bullying was a major problem at their workplace.

Additionally, one in 10 said they were considering leaving their workplace next year. Dr Clendon said developing family-friendly workplace policies was important to encourage young nurses to work efficiently.

Bullying seems to be everywhere: in school, in the workplace. Measures should be done to prevent bullying.
