This article is the second in a series on workplace violence in academia. The specific findings on women nurse academics' experiences with violence in Australian universities are revealed. Findings indicate that Australian universities are competitive with wide spread violence. Participants revealed they were not supported nor recognised for their workplace contributions. Violence predominated in schools of nursing rather than the broader university. It is argued these findings need public dissemination to improve workplace environments and eliminate violence. It is noted that the results reported are part of a larger research study on progression and professional development of women nurse academics.
