The Sweet Spot of Civility: My Story
Reflections on Nursing Leadership (2010)
  • Cynthia M Clark, Boise State University

Whether you are a nursing student or a faculty member, this narrative will speak to you. It tells of my personal experience with faculty incivility and its painful effects. But, most of all, this is a story about courage, compassion and the power of relationship. It has a happy ending, one that emphasizes the capacity of genuine caring and effective mentoring. As you read my story, pay close attention to its plot, characters, climax and resolution.
