Discussion Question

1) Describe the role of the nurse educator in providing a safe and positive learning environment. Include discussion on how to prepare future nurse educators to promote civil behaviors and respond to uncivil behaviors in the practice setting?

2)  “Nurses who experience incivility have higher levels of stress, anxiety, and depression. Incivility and lateral violence may hinder nurses and students from providing safe and effective patient care. Practicing communication skills ….. provides the students the opportunity to respond to incivility and lateral violence in a safe environment” (Sauer et al., 2018, p. 41). What can you do in your future role to help manage incivility in health care environments to lessen the stress, anxiety, and depression of nursing students or even others? Thanks. Dr. Wright
