They should analyze at what impact workplace bullying has upon their nurse turn over ratios’ and if patients would have improved results to discharge if nurses collaborated with care better. It is my hope that one day there will be no animosity between nurses. References Tampa General Hospital. (n.d.). Shared Purpose Statement. Retrieved from
