Introduction: The aim of this study was determining the uncivil behaviors of teachers and students, in nursery and midwifery schools of Shahrekord in 2016. Methods: This cross-sectional study used a questionnaire containing questions on uncivil behavior (disruptive and threatening). Participants were 20 teachers and 150 students of Nursing and Midwifery department of Shahrekord university of Medical Sciences from three fields (nursing, operating room and midwifery). The collected data was analyzed in the form of mean, standard deviation, percent and frequency and analytical tests such as Pearson, chi-square and Phi. Results: The average age of the fifty participants from each field of study was 54/4 ± 06/22 years. Of the 20 professors participating in the study, 90% were female and the average age was 38/9 ± 43/43 years. According to the findings, the participants thought the prevalence of uncivil behaviors was moderate. Professors found students more responsible for such behaviors (40% vs. 60%) while students believed both groups of participants were guilty. Conclusion: Although the frequency and severity of uncivil behaviors by students and teachers were not considerable, but due to the negative effects of such behaviors in learning and teaching environments, appropriate strategies to improve learning environments is highly necessary.
