The purpose of this qualitative study is to describe the narratives of individuals experiencing bullying in their workplace, significant their understanding of solutions, perspectives, and attitudes toward bullying behaviors. Contributing factors—change in leadership, rigid bureaucracy, negative workplace culture pitting nurses against the nurse, loss of space, nursing the patients in hallways, and low healthcare quality linked to inadequate staffing. Health care professionals are self-reporting depression, loneness, isolation, and fear, a sense of sadness, powerlessness, and loss of employment. Bullying should have the same status as the legal system assigns to workplace harassment and violence. No one should suffer the consequences of bullying inflicted on them in a hostile work environment by all age groups. Bullying no longer is attributed to older nurses eating their young but the reversal in true of younger nurses skillfully suggesting that older nurses no longer belong in the workforce, asking them about their retirement plans. 

Key words: Workplace bullying, fear, grief, loss, powerless, psychological well-being, resignation, and younger and older nurses
