Incivility in academia and nursing practice has been a long-standing concern, and now research demonstrates the impact on patient safety and study success. Dr. Susan Luparell is a nationally recognized speaker and author on the topic of incivility in nursing education. Susan earned her BSN from Bradley University in Peoria, IL, her MSN from the Medical College of Georgia and her PhD from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln.
Dr. Luparell's research and scholarship have focused on the topic of incivility in nursing and strategies to break the cycle. Dr. Luparell recently co-authored a chapter titled "Managing Student Incivility and Misconduct in the Learning Environment" for the 5th edition of Billings and Halstead’s (2015) Teaching in Nursing: A Guide for Faculty.
In this virtual abstract, Dr. Luparell provides some practical strategies that could help faculty prepare for and deal with inappropriate or uncivil behaviors in both the classroom and clinical setting.
