Stepping out of the Shadows

The novella depicts one student nurse’s experience of bullying, the context in which it occurs, and provides some strategies that can be used if you witness or experience bullying.

    Nicely done comic! as an nurse, I have experienced bullying in the workplace and have seen nurses bully other nurses. Brining awareness to this problem is crucial in order to establish a positive work environment were bullying is not tolerated.

    I very much enjoyed your book/presentation , you should continue to do more showing other examples. It’s really good.
