Abstract

Introduction: violence is a public health problem, among which we find workplace violence, which is identified when a worker suffers abuse, threats, and attacks that can be verbal and physical. Rotating internship nursing students play an important role within healthcare institutions.
Objective: to determine the factors associated with violence against nursing students in the rotating boarding school.
Methods: the study presents a non-experimental research design with a quantitative, descriptive, and cross-sectional approach in a group of nursing students of the rotating internship, with a sample of 121 participants, to whom a questionnaire with a reliability of 0.717 of Alpha Cronbach was applied.
Results: a low risk was reported about violence by the patient's family member with 88.43%, although a small group of students is at medium risk with 11.57%. As for the factors associated with violence, medium and high risk is shown at 56.2%.
Conclusions: nursing interns receive many physical, verbal, and psychological aggressions at work from relatives of patients and colleagues with higher hierarchies. In the current study, it was possible to observe the presence of blows in physical violence, humiliation, and rudeness in psychological violence and the individual associated factors of aggression by the immediate superior boss, by aggressors in altered mental state, and aggressors by the state of health of the relatives.
