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.
