Horizontal violence (HV), or nonphysical intergroup conflict expressed in overt and covert behaviors of hostility, is pervasive in nursing and has been discussed in the literature for more than two decades. It is costly and has potentially devastating effects including high nurse turnover rates, increased illness, decreased productivity, and decreased quality of patient care. Recognizing how these behaviors are established and sustained is necessary if nurses are to overcome these types of behaviors. This mixed methods study used an online survey to examine 76 hospital nurses' experiences and responses to episodes of HV as well as its effects on job performance...

The number of men in professional caregiving roles has increased. While still a small percentage, the numbers of men in these roles continues to expand. Too often, the methods that professional male caregivers use to provide care differ from their female counterparts. There has not been much research conducted to understand how males in the professional role differ from their female counterparts in terms of caregiving characteristics.

Nurses practicing at every level need a clear definition of collaboration before applying the concept in daily practice. Additionally, a conceptual definition of collaboration in nursing assists nurse researchers in finding or developing instruments for measuring collaboration and attributes of collaboration, which will enhance research findings. Collaboration extends beyond communication and includes sharing, teamwork, and respect. Multiple databases including CINAHL, PubMed, and ERIC were searched using the keywords collaboration, nursing, concept analysis, sharing, respect, and teamwork...

Many others have written about how to prepare a manuscript for publication. Therefore the purpose of this article is to share the experiences of one reviewer and suggest the need for using a theory or conceptual framework to guide research, practice, and publications. Many times while reading a manuscript I feel I am on a journey of discovery without a road map. My sense is authors may be confused about when to include the conceptual framework or the "theory part" in a manuscript if the work being described was not a research study per se...
