Abstract
The concept of civility in nursing education is analyzed using a modification of Wilson's classic concept analysis procedure described by Walker and Avant. This analysis provides a common understanding of the concept of the civility in nursing education and is an attempt to more precisely clarify its meaning. Civility is integral to establishing meaningful relationships among students, faculty, and administrators and is a growing area of research in nursing education. Because the concept of civility lacks consistent definition, this article provides an operational definition of civility using relevant sources from a variety of disciplines.
