Did you know that roughly 21% of nursing turnover can be related to incivility in the workplace? Replacing one nurse in the U.S alone can cost up to $88,000. In an ongoing ANA survey of nursesí health and safety 25 percent to 50 percent reported experiencing various instances of incivility in their workplace.
