    I too just finished reading the posts regarding "why nurses eat their young," and was extremely disappointed, but not surprised, with the replies and words of advice. It concerns me that we are very much aware of this problem, and choose or suggest to our fellow nurses to "hang in there," "transfer to a different unit," don't go in looking to make friends," but most of all that we have not made these abusive nurses accountable for their actions. I'm tired of the excuses we provide to these abusers, instead of protecting the victims. Our profession is parallel to the Battered Woman's Syndrome. We create excuse after excuse as to why these nurses "eat their young," and we choose to look the other way, enabling the pyschological abuse to continue. Perhaps there are too many female hormones in this profession!
