Abstract

This study examined the effects of faculty incivility on nursing students’ satisfaction with their nursing programs, a topic previously unreported. In addition, incidences of incivility, students’ responses to incivility, and academic location of incivility were explored. A high incidence of perceived faculty incivility was reported by participants, and perceived incivility correlated strongly with nursing student program dissatisfaction. Possible causes of incivility in academia and suggestions for addressing this problem are discussed.
