Abstract: Any error made in health care can cause the health care provider to become a second victim. There are many initiatives, tools, and instruments designed to support second victims after an error has been made. The role that nursing education can play in preventing nurses from becoming second victims has not been well explored. This article presents a study designed to investigate perceptions of recent BSN graduates about preparation for medication administration, medication error, and their personal experience with error making and second victimhood.
