Introduction: Nursing is a challenging profession. Workplace bullying is one of these challenges. Compared to other professions, prevalence of workplace bullying is higher in nursing. However, there is little information available about workplace bullying and work environment in nursing and psychiatric nursing in particular, in Iran. This study aimed to determine the relationship between workplace bullying and work environment of nurses working in Razi Educational and Therapeutic Psychiatric Center in Tehran in 2023.
Methods: This study used a cross-sectional descriptive analytical design that was conducted on 153 nurses working in Razi Educational and Therapeutic Psychiatric Center in Tehran in the fall of 2023. Participants were included in the study via simple random sampling method and based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. Demographic questionnaire, Negative Acts Questionnaire-Revised (NAQ-R) and Practice Environment Scale of Nursing Working Index (PES-NWI) were used to collect data. Data was analyzed by SPSS 25 software.
Results: Prevalence of workplace bullying among nurses in the last 6 month was 24.2%. The mean score of Practice Environment Scale was 2.41±0.45. A higher work environment score [OR=0/129, 95% CI for OR (0/046, 0/359), p<0/001] was significantly associated with a lower risk of bullying. Having a good relationship with managers [OR=0/242, 95% CI for OR (0/081,0/724), p=0/011 ] and being interested in the work unit [OR=0/190, 95% CI for OR (0/063,0/549), p=0/003] were also associated with lower risk of bullying.
Conclusions: The work environment influences the presence of bullying. Therefore, nurse managers are advised to reduce workplace bullying by improving work environment. Improving nurses’ communication with managers and increasing their interest in the workplace can also be helpful in this regard.
