Surname 1 Lateral Violence Lateral violence refers to a “deliberate and harmful behavior demonstrated in the workplace by one employee to another” (, 2019) . Lateral violence is rampant in the nursing occupation with the Carter report showing that 44% to 85% of nurses experience lateral violence (Sincox & Fitzpatrick, 2008) . Mostly, novice nurses are the main victims while the experienced nurses are the perpetrator. lateral violence in nursing is masked since it is something that is done repetitively leading to its acceptance within the nursing culture. Some of the effects of lateral violence exposure to a person are that they may develop depressive symptoms, decreased sense of well-being and even complain of physical health problems. Also, lateral violence seems to attack the self-esteem of a person. Psychologically it may affect the sleep patterns of a person and cause him/her to develop post-traumatic stress disorder (Sincox & Fitzpatrick, 2008) .

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
