Stifled Learning: Nursing Students' Experience of Incivility in Clinical Education
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. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

Integrative Music Therapy: A Healing Intervention
ABSTRACT: Music plays a significant role in the lives of individuals across the lifespan. Some healthcare providers may not appreciate music therapy and the positive benefits it can have on the environment, patients, caregivers, and healthcare staff. Integrative Music Therapy (IMT) has proven to be effective in multiple settings, offering therapy for behavioral, emotional, physiological, psychological, and psychosocial needs. IMT, performed by a trained, certified professional (MT-BC), does not seek to replace medication or other procedures, but works synergistically with provided healthcare.

ABSTRACT: A literature review was conducted to evaluate existing knowledge of incivility in the nursing workplace through the lens of nursing ethics and spirituality. Study articles presented a consistent theme of improved organizational commitment and job satisfaction when spirituality was injected into the workplace.

12 Hour Shifts: Literature Reviewed, Wise Use Challenged
ABSTRACT: Concern is reported about the negative outcomes of 12-hour shifts for nurses, including sleep-deprived fatigue, negative neurobehavioral outcomes, and patient safety. However, 12-hour shifts remain the prevailing staffing method. When should the concern for nurses' health and well-being be factored into staffing decisions? If the 12-hour model was used more wisely, that is, nurses were not working too much and/or too long, would there be a need for change? Will nurses and researchers pursue ways to address the negative outcomes of 12-hour shifts? (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)
