Workplace incivility, or bullying, experienced by nurses has been shown to have negative consequences on nurses and the care they provide patients. Nurses’ roles are being challenged in the healthcare environment because of incivility in the workplace. These negative outcomes exist despite the support provided by teams on which these nurses work. This literature review is focused on the prevalence and effect of nurse bullying (nurseon- nurse, as well as physician-on-nurse) and the influence of such incivility on healthcare teamwork. Specific attention is given to three important team behaviors: leadership, trust, and communication.
