Author information

Department of Health Studies, University of New England, New South Wales.


A survey of 317 registered nurses enrolled in tertiary post-registration courses found that two thirds of the 197 respondents had encountered sexual harassment in the work place. A quarter of these nurses identified medical officers and 22.1% identified co-workers as their harassers.This paper identifies the harassing behaviours the respondents experienced, their responses to the behaviour and the effects the harassment had on them.
