Abstract

ABSTRACT: Incivility is of great concern in nursing, yet little is known about nursing students' encounters with incivility during clinical education. The lived experience of nursing students who encountered uncivil acts (n = 12) was explored through narrative interviews. Themes describing incivility emerged, including covert criticism and open shaming. Students experienced emotional and physical turmoil, and mixed messages that created a paradox. Further research is needed to understand components of incivility and the negative remnants left by uncivil encounters on nursing students.
