Broad Topic Area Thought on Incivility: Student and Facility Perceptions of Uncivil behavior by Clark &Springer (2007)  
Lit Review The literature review analyzed such works as “Faculty encounters with uncivil nursing students: An overview” by Luparell (2004). This study had almost the same approach as Clark & Springer (2007). In their study, Dispelling desperation in nursing education, Hall (2004) argued that nursing education is not as stressful as many think. It is possible to find students going through college without incidences. The argument by Kolanko et al. (2006) in their study believed that academic dishonesty, bullying, incivility, and violence: Difficult challenges facing nurse educators is that various factors influence performance and perspectives. These include backgrounds, experiences, and even the state of society in general. For instance, if there are economic challenges, this impacts the students’ morale. Handling anger in the teacher-student relationship by Thomas (2003) indicates that solutions to incivility are possible. Progress is achievable as long as the stakeholders are keen, able, and willing to listen to each other.  
Problem Statement Many institutions have fostered incivility, thus trying to nurture decency, institutions, and politeness. This causes students to provide respect ease tension, and the uncivil students tend to be rude and disrespectful (Clark & Springer, 2007). This action has caused the institutions to foster forward development to harmonize and ease tension compared to those that do not condone such behaviors.  
Research Questions         i.            How do nursing students and nursing facilities contribute to incivility in nursing education? (Clark & Springer, 2007).

ii.            What are some of the causes of incivility in nursing education? (Clark & Springer, 2007).

iii.            What remedies might be effective in preventing or reducing incivility in nursing education? (Clark & Springer, 2007).

Sample The sample for the study is 36 students with nine nursing programs, 15 from nursing faculty, and 12 from random students. The scope of the study is represented from six states which formed the scope and general location of the study.  
Describe Phenomena (Qualitative) Clark and Springer (2007) stated the study’s variables as the behaviors of the students and the facility while in class and when outside the class. In this case, the hypothesis has stated that the view of the two groups’ incivility is relative to cooperation and the role played by their stakeholders beside them.  
Methodology  and Design The researchers’ employed a qualitative research method to examine the perceptions of incivility according to the students and faculty.  
Purpose Statement Clark and Springer (2007) purposed to establish all possible mechanisms and ways and root causes to improve the consequence of incivility.  
Data Collection Instruments and Approach The study used extensive interviews to collect data from the field.  
Data Analysis Approach The research revealed that students actively or relatively participate in incivility in the school.
