The purpose of this study was to investigate differences in the experiences of incivility of 2 generations of associate degree nursing faculty. A quantitative study was conducted using the Incivility in Nursing Education Survey to determine whether a difference exists between Baby Boomer (n = 50) and Generation X (n = 21) faculty's experience of incivility. Results indicate significant difference in reported student disruption, frequency of disruptive student behaviors, and number of student threats reported by the 2 generations.
