Abstract
This study examines the prevalence and risk factors for intimate partner violence (IPV) and intimate partner abuse (IPA) against female nurses and nursing personnel (n = 1981). Data were collected through online surveys conducted at three hospitals and one geriatric care center in a Mid-Atlantic US metropolitan area. Lifetime physical or sexual IPV was reported by 25% of participants and 22.8% reported experiencing lifetime emotional abuse by an intimate partner. Logistic regression analyses identified independent variables statistically related to IPV and IPA, including increased age, having children, not being married, and experiences of childhood abuse. Implications for women in the workplace are discussed.
