Nursing Education Perspectives: January-February 2012 - Volume 33 - Issue 1 - p 21-26 Buy Abstract ABSTRACT Student incivility is a growing problem in the academic nursing community. The purpose of this study was to identify factors associated with the increasing prevalence of incivility among nursing students. Various databases (Allied and Complimentary Medicine, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, and Ovid MEDLINE) were queried using the key words incivility, student incivility, nursing education, studentfaculty relations, student aggression, and student violence. Both research- and non-research-based articles were selected for review. Also included among the references retrieved were articles pertaining to unethical conduct and disruptive behavior. Virtually all of the articles characterized incivility as the product of a symbiotic relationship between students and faculty. Fundamentally, incivility was found to be a multifaceted problem whose resolution is predicated on gaining a heightened understanding of the economic, sociological, and psychological underpinnings of disruptive behavior.
