Suicide Is Hitting the Nursing Industry Hard

Sometimes, nurses also have to deal with workplace violence

Nurses also have to deal with workplace violence. Sometimes, patients can become violent with a nurse because of the medication they're on, their injuries, or a disease. Regardless of whether this violence is intentional, it will be traumatic for the victim, no matter what. Having to deal with violence may lead to depression, anxiety, and PTSD, which can lead to thoughts of suicide.
