ABSTRACT: After experiencing a hostile clinical environment as a student nurse, the author's resolve to reduce nurse hostility resulted in investigation of workplace incivility and the creation of a learning module for nurses at her facility. Applying biblical counsel and personal reflection are tools a Christian nurse can draw on to counteract workplace hostility.

Vicki Wetter, DNP, RN, is an assistant professor of nursing at Valdosta State University, Valdosta, Georgia. She teaches traditional and accelerated BSN students.

The author declares no conflict of interest.
