The American Nurses Association (ANA) has recommended Ending Nurse-to-Nurse Hostility: Why Nurses Eat Their Young and Each Other, by Kathleen Bartholomew, RN, MN, in its official position statement on Incivility, Bullying, and Workplace Violence as a resource for nurses. Now in its second edition, the cornerstone work has just been released as an eBook and offers 4 continuing education credits (CEU).

In 2015, the ANA issued a press release announcing its updated position statement on workplace bullying and violence, stating that the “nursing profession will no longer tolerate violence of any kind from any source.” Among the interventions recommended as “primary prevention” is the HCPro classic work by Kathleen Bartholomew, Ending Nurse-to-Nurse Hostility, Second Edition.

"I am honored that my second edition of Ending Nurse-to-Nurse Hostility is included in the ANA's position statement on incivility and bullying as a recommendation for nurses,” says Kathleen Bartholomew. “It means a lot to have the endorsement of my profession after a decade of work dedicated to raising awareness about the impact that our relationships have on both patients and nurses. Studying this topic and listening to nurses’ stories from all over the country has really shone a light on the incredible work that nurses do - especially their ability to create and hold the space for our patients to heal."

HCPro is honored to have published Kathleen’s work and congratulate her for this wonderful recognition of a lifetime commitment to making the nursing workplace a healthier, more collegial place.
