Clark and Springer (2007) conducted a qualitative study to examine the perceptions of faculty and students in a nursing program on incivility.

Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements

• How do nursing students and nurse faculty members contribute to incivility in nursing education?
• What are some of the causes of incivility in nursing education?
• What remedies might be effective in preventing or reducing incivility?
They gathered responses from online surveys with open-ended questions from 36 nurse faculty and 168 nursing students. Each of the researchers reviewed all comments and organized them by themes. They noted four major themes of responses:
• Faculty perceptions of in-class disruption and incivility by students
• Faculty perceptions of out-of-class disruption and incivility by students
• Student perceptions of uncivil behaviors by faculty
• Faculty and student perceptions of possible causes of incivility in nursing education
A total of eight sub-themes were identified among the faculty comments on types of in-class disruptions. Those subthemes were:
• Disrupting others by talking in class
• Making negative remarks/disrespectful comments toward faculty
• Leaving early or arriving late
• Using cell phones
• Sleeping/not paying attention
• Bringing children to class
• Wearing immodest attire
• Coming to class unprepared
