Using Brain Science to Confidently Combat Nursing Bullies

Presented By: Alyssa Dver

Brain science and Bullying?

Notoriously “nurses eat their young”. It’s a sad known saying that describes an unfortunate fact that older, experienced nurses frequently bully younger and ‘temporary’ ones.  Doctors, too, are also known to bully nurses in general ironically contradicting their hypocritic oaths to “do no harm”. Bullying sure does – both emotionally and physically.

In this highly interactive session, we’ll use brain science to explain why and what happens both socially and neurologically – and more importantly, what you can do to cope and combat it.


  • Understand why traveling nurses are more susceptible to bullying.
  • Get tips and tools to manage bullying at the moment and afterward.
  • Gain comfort knowing that you aren’t alone in your past or future experiences.
