I​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​ncivility, violence, and bullying in the workplace are a hot issue in nursing, with bullying and incivility prevalent in all settings. According to Yoder-Wise (2018), incivility and bullying have become widespread in nursing education as well as clinical settings. Nursing has reported an increase in the number of incidents in incivility in the last quarter resulting in a decrease in job satisfaction. You have been tasked with presenting to administration why this type of behavior in the workplace should be resolved. 

The ANA states any form of violence, from any source, should not be tolerated in the nursing profession, and employers and nurse must adopt evidence-based strategies that avert and lessen workplace violence, bullying, and incivility; and promote wellness, safety, health and best possible outcomes in health care. Inpatient and outpatient settings and also schools of nursing are required to provide a safe practice environment whereby nurses do not encounter workplace violence (Cherly, 2019).
