Why Civility Matters
Boise State - Beyond the Blue Faculty Podcasts (2011)
  • Cynthia M Clark, Boise State University

Incivility in American society is on the rise and rude and disruptive behavior is increasing in colleges and universities. Incivility can take on many forms—from subtle behaviors such as eye-rolling and arm-crossing to overt expressions of incivility like bullying, taunting, and intimidation. The emotional, physical, and economic costs of incivility can be high. In this podcast, Clark, founder of Civility Matters, provides an overview of incivility in nursing education, discusses how and why faculty and students contribute to incivility, and describes a range of evidence-based strategies to recognize, prevent, and address incivility in nursing education and practice.
