Promoting a Culture of Civility

Piri, Louisa, and I are conducting a study to learn more about experiences with incivility in nursing learning environments, as well as to identify strategies for promoting a culture of civility.

Please click here to learn more about who we are, how this study developed, and why we decided to pursue this topic.

We hope you will take 10-15 minutes to complete a 9-question survey, share your insights, and help nurses and future nurses learn in a culture of civility. This study is open to all nurses. You get to decide if you want to answer as a student or a faculty member. You don’t have to be either right now, just think back to when you were last in the classroom or clinical learning environment.

Thank you, in advance, for helping nurses learn and grow, with a goal of making learning environments welcoming and respectful for all.

  1. I’m not a student or a faculty member but I have been a preceptor many times for BSN students, and also have had many ADN students in our clinical environment. The ADN instructors tend to be more hands on if the student needs more help. There wasn’t an option for that on my survey. My student days were long ago!
    Most of my experiences has a preceptor for BSN experiences have been positive. SInce they are 1:1 experiences the actual supervisors of their experience aren’t always on site. For me, I am happy to teach but I expect there is some minimal level of competency by the student. When I shared with one supervisor/faculty member that the student seem puzzled with regards to using a manual blood pressure cuff, I thought she would take the student aside to review it. But she did not, and I was not impressed.


  2. Please participate in our study by completing the survey! It is for all nurses. You do not have to be a student or faculty member to complete. Every nurse was a student at one time. Just have to tap into your memory. Thanks!
