Integrating critical thinking strategies into nursing curricula
Teaching and Learning in Nursing Volume 9, Number 2, ISSN 1557-3087 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
Critical thinking has been a focus in nursing education for more than 20 years. Promoting student competence in critical thinking skills is essential for nurse educators. Fostering critical thinking ability involves planning and implementation of strategies throughout the nursing curriculum. Reflection, concept mapping, and questioning are some of the best practices identified as effective in developing the critical thinking dimension. Developing a framework of best practices for promoting critical thinking in nursing education can assist nurse educators with integrating critical thinking strategies into nursing curricula.
