Up to 33% of nurses report experiencing this phenomenon on a regular basis (Laschinger et al., 2010; Sá and Fleming, 2008). This alarm- ing statistic has severe implications, not only for nursing staff and the organization, but also for health care services. Specifically, workplace psychological harassment is related to employ- ees’ ill-being, which can be expressed as psy- chological distress (Skogtad et al., 2007), anxiety, depression, psychosomatic symptoms (Zapf et al., 1996), and decreased life satisfac- tion (Bowling and Beehr, 2006). At the organi- zational level, psychological harassment undermines employees’ functioning at work, given its association with decreased motivation, performance, job satisfaction (Yildirim, 2009), greater turnover intention (Quine, 2001), absen- teeism (Kivimaki et al., 2000), and risk of com- mitting clinical errors (Farrell et al., 2006). These detrimental outcomes contribute to the already salient nursing shortage (Farrell et al., 2006) and generate considerable costs for the Workplace psychological harassment in Canadian nurses: A descriptive study Sarah-Geneviève Trépanier 1 , Claude Fernet 1 and Stéphanie Austin 1 Abstract

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
