According to Freire’s theory, oppression in the work place limits individual creativity and response to challenges in their work place. This study will aim at assessing bullying, nurse’s burnout, and intent to leave in among nurses in light of Freire model. The study will use a survey research design and data will be collected using questionnaires administered to 100 nurses who will be randomly selected among nurses working in a southern city. The results of the study will be analyzed using SPSS.
