  • There is a group of nurses that is called the “BAD GIRL’s CLUB”, they are always rude, offensive with other staff members. There is the president of the club who when she is at work the whole environment changes. She always complains about everyone except herself and even when it has been brought to her attention about her obvious behavior, she only states that it is because of others.

  • No difference in my eyes, if it harms the recipient or puts the patient at risk, semantics won’t matter.  Sorority and fraternity hazings have resulted in harm and death…so does not pose a great argument for why hazing is any different.  Thank you for working hard to help new nurses survive in a sometimes difficult work environment.

  • Thank you for including that hazing is not helpful but harmful. Both bullying and hazing is inappropriate.I think most competent people would know this. It’s incredible that this goes on. I’m very disappointed in the nursing profession.Many college freshmen who are coursed into groups end up arrested for doing stupid things the fraternity leaders shouldn’t have asked them to do.

  • This discussion of teasing and bullying ignores a type of behavior which targets someone because of a protected status, sex, sexual orientation, race, etc. The law calls such illegal, offensive and sometimes violent behavior discrimination and harassment. Many state and federal law make it illegal to harass someone especially because of a particular protected trait. The labels “hazing” and “bullying” minimize the systemic maltreatment of girls (and boys), LGBT youth, children of color, etc.

  • Renee, great message.  Thanks for posting.  I just found your site.  We share a similar passion.  I would ask that you look at a FB group page I created entitled, “Stop the Silence in Healthcare”.  We are up to about 1000 members and it is a great place to share information.  I will post this video there now.  Let’s connect.  Mike Ackerman
