This highly anticipated, fully revised second edition revisits and augments the award-winning Creating & Sustaining Civility in Nursing Education. In this comprehensive new guide, author Cynthia Clark explores the problem of incivility within nursing academe and provides practical solutions that range from ready-to-use teaching tools to principles for broad-based institutional change. She further explores the cost and consequences of incivility, its link to stress, ways to identify the problem, and how to craft a vision for change-including bridging the gap between nursing education and practice.
Rather than dwell on the negative, this book focuses on solutions, including role-modeling and mentoring, stress management, and positive learning environments. Nursing educators at all levels will appreciate the variety of evidence-based strategies that faculty-and students-can implement to promote and maintain civility and respect in the education setting, including online learning.
Praise for Creating & Sustaining Civility in Nursing Education, Second Edition
“Dr. Cindy Clark has done an incredible task of bringing this issue to the forefront and causing us all to take a pause. Incivility is a matter that is often hard to define but you know it when you see it. Dr. Clark’s work has allowed us as nursing professionals to not only describe it but to stop it in its tracks and address the root causes. This is a must read for all as we continue to advance the practice and art of nursing!”
Anne Marie Watkins, DNP, MSHCA, RN, CENP, Chief Nurse Executive, Kaiser Permanente-San Diego
