NLN Toolkit
Healthful Work Environment

The Healthful Work Environment Toolkit, originally published in 2005, has been revised to include a heightened focus on fostering safe, civil, and collegial learning environments. The toolkit also includes resources to improve the health of the academic work environment and facilitate or enhance faculty satisfaction. A list of essential questions was developed that embody the essence of academic civility and are fundamental to establishing a strong community of colleagues. The questions are designed to initiate and sustain courageous conversations among faculty, institutional leadership, students, and other stakeholders to bring about and maximize civility within academic environments.


NLN Workshop
How to Improve the Health of Your Learning Environment:
Fostering Civility Among Students and Faculty

Given the costs of incivility and disruptive behavior on patient safety, the role of nurse educators in developing professionals who can interact appropriately with their health care team members has perhaps never been more important. Yet, faculty members frequently express frustration about how to effectively deal with various difficult student situations, including how to address inappropriate student behavior. Additionally, sometimes inappropriate behavior exists among faculty teams that negatively impact the overall learning environment and runs counter to the professional behaviors we expect of our students. This two-day workshop will equip educators with tangible strategies to cultivate civility within the learning environment, and more adeptly handle difficult student situations when they do occur.
