Nurses and Physician Communication: Findings From a National Survey of Nurse Practitioners and Nurses
The authors found that nurses and physicians communicate well. In fact, the majority of NP/RN participants reported that their communication with physicians was “excellent.” Despite this, there is room for improvement. The report suggests that improving collaboration between NPs and physicians could improve the quality of care provided to patients.
The Power of Presence
While nurses have a unique ability to provide care, they are also in a unique position to help patients. Nurses can provide comfort, compassion and hope—the things that make the difference in patients’ lives.

Why Nurses Leave Nursing
A study by the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing showed that nurses leave their jobs for numerous reasons. These include low salaries, lack of autonomy, lack of support from colleagues and management, lack of resources such as equipment and supplies to do their job properly, and a lack of appreciation or respect from administrators. They may also feel like there are no opportunities for advancement in the field—either because they don’t have enough experience yet or because there aren’t any other positions available at their hospital.

Lateral violence, as defined by the American Nurses Association (ANA) is “the use of coercion, intimidation, or threats directed at a colleague to force them to do something they otherwise would not have done.”
This study examines lateral violence among nurses in Australia. It found that many nurses experience lateral violence from other nurses through acts such as unfair play, gossiping and criticism of others’ work performance. Some participants reported experiencing lateral violence from patients who were dissatisfied with their care experiences or felt they did not receive adequate attention from staff members; others said doctors sometimes used intimidation tactics when trying to get their way during patient care consultations.

In order for both of these problems to be solved, it is necessary firstly for them to be identified correctly so that appropriate measures can be taken against them.
