Greetings Colleagues and Friends,

Thank you for participating in this very important research project to examine faculty to faculty incivility in nursing education. Incivility is defined as rude or disruptive behaviors that often result in psychological or physiological distress for the people involved and if left unaddressed, may progress into threatening situations (Clark, 2009).

This survey takes approximately 8-10 minutes to complete depending on the length of your narrative comments and has been approved by the Institutional Review Board at Boise State University. The anonymous collection of information ensures your confidentiality since there is no link between the data collected and you.
