Critical Doing

Next-Level Communication and Critical Thinking Skills

Critical thinking plays an especially important role in the field of nursing. Many of us struggle to develop those skills during school and throughout that first challenging year at the bedside. We may think we know the best way to tackle a shift, set of tasks, or situation. But when it comes to putting boots (or Danskos) on the ground to actually get it done, that’s where the novice and advanced beginner nurses tend to need extra support and encouragement to develop into that competent nurse. Learn from experienced nurse and CNRA, Nick Angelis, about the art of critical thinking and how you can translate that into critical doing.

Topics include:
  • Common Sense and Competence
  • Coworker Communication
  • Care Coordination
  • Provider Phone Calls
  • Knowing How You Think
  • Simplifying
  • Documentation
  • From Thinking to Doing: Waiting for Your Patient to Crash
  • Communication While Doing
  • Prioritization
  • The Follow-Up … and more
If you’re a nursing student, new nurse, or an experienced nurse getting back into the acute care game - this course is for you. Impress your colleagues, instructors, providers, and yourself by quickly connect the dots between thinking and doing, while communicating effectively in the process.

Also, this course is eligible for 3.5 optional hours of continuing education!
