Creating and Sustaining Civility in Nursing Education (Paperback) (Cynthia Clark)
About this item
It's no secret that disruptive behaviors are creating problems in colleges and universities. Some academics believe it's a necessary evil, but as schools work to recruit new faculty and nurse educators, the question of whether faculty work in a civil culture or hostile environment becomes a real issue. In nursing, the risk assumed by not addressing uncivil behavior reaches well beyond the college campus and can negatively impact patient safety, nurse recruitment and retention, and commitment to the profession. Because nursing programs are places where students (and faculty) provide direct care to patients through clinical experiences, uncivil and disruptive acts must be addressed so that such behaviors do not spiral into aggression and jeopardize the learning and practice environment. This book will feature original research based on polling questions, stories, empirical evidence to provide an overview of academic incivility and to describe a wide range of evidence-based strategies to recognize, prevent, and address incivility in nursing education and transition to practice.
