Nursing faculty from different colleges, governments, and non-governmental organizations were (through system-generated questionaries) surveyed using the Workplace Incivility Civility Survey (WICS). Result: Study findings revealed that 27.4% exhibited mild incivility, 29.0% displayed moderate incivility, and the highest proportion was observed in the severe category, 40.35. Moreover, a significant difference was found between race and incivility. Conclusions: In conclusion, the study revealed that a significant proportion of participants experienced varying levels of incivility, with the highest percentage in the severe category.
