Quantitative, descriptive research was conducted to determine why nurses in a regional hospital in Mpumalanga Province, South Africa, under-report workplace violence. Data was collected with a questionnaire and analysed with descriptive statistics. Several organisational-related, management-related, and nurse-related barriers were indicated as to why nurses under-report workplace violence.
