Research output: Other contribution


Incivility in nursing education is a growing area of concern for students, educators, and the entire health care system. It takes many forms within the classroom and clinical setting. Students and faculty can be the perpetrator or the recipient of uncivil behaviors. Incivility can also have a negative effect on patient safety and the clinical outcomes for patients. Because of these issues, it is imperative that schools of nursing implement measures to educate and promote a culture of civility in the next generation of professional nurses.
