Abstract

This article reports findings from a study that examined the prevalence of peer incivility among nursing students and the impact of incivility on students’ physical and mental health and their perceived stress level. Students who experienced high levels of peer incivility had lower mental health scores (P = .0002), lower physical health scores (P = .0069), and higher stress levels (P = .0016). Students who experienced incivility in the classroom had higher levels of peer incivility (P < .001) and lower physical health scores (P < .05).
