The article discusses the difficulties and challenges faculty in schools of nursing in the U.S. These problems were determined using a panel discussion format to explore the nature of these difficulties. The authors hoped to voice the troublesome and painful aspects of teaching, through sharing personal experiences and review of literature. Among these challenges are academic dishonesty, low and high-technology forms of cheating used by nursing students, bullying, issues of incivility among teachers and violence. Authors suggest the need to process social information correctly and appropriately and develop positive and acceptable social skills that are essential for the development of the profession.
