Abstract

This research study focused on the phenomena of student incivility in nursing education and the perception of part-time and full-time Associate Degree in Nursing (AND) nursing faculty regarding the issue. Nursing student incivility has become a threat to learning and instructor job satisfaction (Bittner & O’Connor, 2012). The Incivility in Nursing Education (Revised) Survey was used to identify nursing faculty perceptions of student uncivil behavior within an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) nursing program at a Southeastern United States community college. I utilized the Delphi technique to reach consensus among practice experts to determine best practices to prevent and manage student uncivil behaviors. Results of the study can be used for further academic policy development regarding student incivility.
