Disruptive student behavior is an emerging concern in institutions of higher education in the People's Republic of China (PRC). Faculty from a nursing college in the PRC expressed a desire to study the type and frequency of student incivility. Nursing faculty from the United States of America and the PRC collaborated on a study to measure faculty and student perceptions of student incivility in a Chinese nursing college. Student incivility in nursing education is a relatively new field of investigation; however, this preliminary study in the PRC shows it to be a substantial problem that needs to be addressed.
